Hurricane Relief

Tue, Oct 24, 2006

Since the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, it became increasingly clear that FEMA trailers do not provide suitable living conditions. While FEMA provides trailers at no charge following a natural disaster, the trailers offer little in terms of hope or comfort, and they are most certainly not a long-term solution.

One third of these people were still living in FEMA’s travel trailers after two years. In comparison, Hurricane Katrina left one million people homeless. It’s evident that past housing solutions for future hurricanes will continue to fail if something is not done differently to house those in the Gulf Coast.
