Putting communities, and lives, back together after the storm September 5, 2008Posted by dianehuhn in Coastal Restoration, Hurricanes.
Please click the link below to read an excellent blog post written by Kate Barron on the Anderson Cooper 360 site. Kate works with Oxfam America as a Community Development Specialist. She’s worked with numerous non-profit organizations throughout southern Louisiana over the past 2 1/2+ years in the recovery from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. In her post, Kate recounts some of her recent conversation with Courtney Pellegrin Howell, Director of Bayou Grace Community Services (the organization that I will be working with over the next year as a volunteer.)
Kate does an excellent job of outlining the challenges faced by small coastal communities. Help spread the word regarding the need to provide the lines of defense that are not only critical to protecting this national treasure, but critical to it’s very survival.
