KTC Enjoys Kwanzaa Celebration
Plentys work in the Gulf continues while conditions faced by thousands of survivors fail to improve: 50,000 families still in FEMA trailers are slowly being evicted. 90,000 homeowners in Louisiana are still waiting for promised Road Home money to repair their houses. The homeless population of New Orleans has doubled (to more than 12,000) since before Katrina. HUD intends to spend $762 million to bulldoze 4,600 public housing apartment units in New Orleans.
Plenty volunteer Elaine Langely, with the generous support of doctors and nurses and other staff at the Williamson Medical Center near Nashville where she is a nurse, and members of the Farm Community in Summertown, TN, collected and distributed a 16 foot moving van full of new clothes, food and toys in New Orleans and Biloxi, MS.
Katrina Recovery program Director, Tony Sferlazza with the welcome assistance of numerous skilled volunteers has been renovating the homes of FEMA trailer inhabitants. One such home was completely remodeled from its gutted state to finished in 5 weeks for $11,000.
