Financier Hilt Tatum IV focuses on alternative investments and analyzes new offerings as he presides over iPoint Capital Partners. Hilt Tatum IV also oversees several individual portfolios and serves on the boards of directors. Additionally, Hilt Tatum gives to several nonprofits, such as the American Red Cross.
The Red Cross provides immediate assistance in natural disasters, but also keeps working in damaged communities after the first emergencies have passed. For example, it is still deeply involved with people recovering from Hurricane Sandy.
For victims in Connecticut, the Red Cross provides services such as rebuilding houses, modifying homes to meet current codes, and meeting temporary housing expenses. Caseworkers reach out to identify other necessities.
In New Jersey, the Red Cross has awarded a $600,000 grant to a church organization; the money will go to families in need of furniture, appliances, and home repair.
A New York family tells a common story: More than eight feet of standing water severely damaged their home. Through the assistance of partner agencies, the Red Cross was able to restore plumbing and electrical functioning. Other efforts took care of framing, flooring, and painting. The family recently moved back to a renovated home.
