Need Help? Looking to help? Post it here.

Some Millburn and Short Hills residents need a lot of help right now and others are searching for ways to help. And people are at a loss as to where to go or what to do.

Here at Patch, readers have been great about trying to answer questions of out-to-town residents wondering how badly their neighborhoods suffered during the storm. Others have helped by posting of the flooding in their Patch is working as fast as we can to get information to you, but we’d like to help you help each other with a forum for getting the word out.

We thought we'd use this space to connect people who need help with those who want to do just that.

Hello, I am looking for an apartment to move in as soon as possible. I live on Essex Street now. My landlord does not want to fix anything here and now since the hurricane my basement had knee length water and now mold in it. If anyone has information on a 3-2 bedroom available please let me know at adunn.1@verizon.net. Thank you very much.

Try Short Hills Village. Its behind the Chanticlear ... oops that was torn down. It's in Springfield so your school district would change. http://www.forestrealtyinc.com/Apartments/module/property_info/property[id]/799/
