Several nonprofits have teamed up to help rebuild homes damaged by Hurricane Katrina.
Tuesday’s Children, a national nonprofit, sent about a dozen teenagers to New Orleans to help with the efforts. The homes that are being rebuilt will be sold to local school teachers at a discounted rate.
The children participating in this effort have all lost a parent to an act of terrorism, or one of their parents is on active duty in the military. They have all flown in from other parts of the country to help.
Tuesday’s Children is the leading nonprofit organization providing long-term support to communities and people around the world impacted by terrorism and traumatic loss. The organization offers a time-tested, long-term approach that enables families and communities torn apart by tragedy to heal, recover and thrive.
