i just received this information today:
Habitat for Humanity has launched a massive long-term rebuilding plan for families affected by Hurricane Katrina. They will be assembling materials to build houses. Then working with affiliates, churches, and others in communities all over the country, they will "pre-build" home frames and ship them to the Gulf Coast and New Orleans where families, volunteers and builders will build the homes. To read more about their efforts please visit their website at: habitat for humanity
as i sit in my warm, comfy home this morning i realize afresh how terrifying displacement and homelessness would be. god help them please.
