Flier requesting Chinese language interpreters to volunteer at the WTC 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.
