Flier requesting Chinese language interpreters to volunteer at the World Trade Center Family Assistance Center (Pier 94) from October 22–November 15.
By the afternoon of September 11, the New York City Mayor’s Community Assistance Unit had set up a temporary center at a hospital in Manhattan to assist people concerned about loved ones believed to have been at the World Trade Center. The center moved to progressively larger spaces until September 17, when a passenger ship terminal at Pier 94 on the Hudson River was transformed into a family assistance center. Staffed by hundreds of workers from more than 50 agencies, the center provided legal, financial, and mental health services to victims’ relatives.
