Many people were able to secure housing, however that was not the case for everyone. Vinny spoke with several people that had been excluded from federal services and are not sure what they are going to do for a job and housing. |
I spoke with David Brown from Katy, Texas. It was his first day volunteering at the George R Brown Center with Operation Compassion. He explained some of the roles played by Operation Compassion in helping Katrina survivors. On this day, Operation Compassion volunteers were helping people move their belongings out of the Convention Center and into vans and taxis. (2:45 minutes / 1.3 MB)

If you can make it out to Texas, Mississippi, Alabama or Louisiana, your help is definitely needed.
Also, if you can donate money to support independent media for survivors of Hurricane Katrina, that would be very helpful as well.
