In case you hadn't heard, pretty much all the areas struck by Hurricane Katrina are still struggling to recover. It's been in the news recently how slow things are going. Beauracracy, supply chain issues, and lack of funding, keeps getting in the way. The people living in the affected areas still need our help.
One of the organizations that I've found to be effective is Architecture For Humanity. AFH has chosen to focus its efforts on rebuilding Biloxi, Mississippi and you can track the progress of some of its projects on the AFH Katrina webpage. They're still looking for volunteers, especially those with construction and architecture backgrounds.
