In Face of Continuing Katrina and Rita Needs Red Cross Adds Resources to Gulf Coast
Date:4/2/2008

Over the past 30 months:

-- More than 70,000 families have received recovery planning help from the Red Cross and other nonprofit and faith-based groups active in the recovery. But several thousand remain on waiting lists.

-- 6,300 families have received nearly $60 million in Red Cross recovery funds to help repair homes, get to a job, and obtain work-related supplies or job training. Other organizations active in recovery have given many millions more in financial support. Yet thousands of people who were underinsured or otherwise lack resources still need help.

-- More than 23,000 people of all ages have enrolled in the Emotional Support Program, but several hundred more call every week as they struggle with the burden of the slow recovery.
