Rebuilding and helping those communities who were victims of hurricane Katrina

St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana More than 4 years after the devastation of Hurricane Katrina, thousands of families’ homes across the Gulf Coast remain uninhabitable. United Way of Greater New Orleans works with the St. Bernard Project to rebuild homes in the parish immediately east of New Orleans. Every home in St. Bernard Parish was underwater in August, 2005. Volunteers have helped to move hundreds of families back into their homes. Still, thousands require additional help to move back home. People are still living in deplorable situations and I really want to fix that! Please help me get to St, Bernard Parish.
