Hurricane Katrina--6 Years Later

On a recent work trip to New Orleans, I had the opportunity to visit St. Bernard Parish, just five miles from downtown. I met Mike, whose home was devastated during Hurricance Katrina in August 2005. Since that time, he and his family have been transient, moving about and living in temporary housing. Finally, after nearly six years, and with the generous assistance of The St. Bernard Project, Mike's home is being rebullt and he and his family will continue on the road to restoring their lives. There are still many abandonded and uninhabitable homes along the same street; a glaring reminder that there is still much to be done for many other families. The people of New Orleans still need help. For more information on The St. Bernard Project and how you can help, visit
