Five years have passed since the hurricanes devastated New Orleans, yet there are still over 570 families still living in temporary FEMA trailers!  Until those families have rebuilt their lives, our job isn't over. And the recent oil spill has only made the situation throughout the Gulf Coast worse. But we won’t give up on a better future.  You can join our efforts.  Give, Advocate, Volunteer…Live United!  We invite you to join us.
