Struggling for a Home After Hurricane Katrina

On September 20th, after Vinny and I visited the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston, we headed over to the Reliant Arena to find out more information about Katrina survivors being transferred from the Arena to Fort Chaffee, a military base in Arkansas.

After trying to find family members and friends, the next step for Katrina survivors has been to try to find some form of housing.
