STORIES OF HOPEKatrina's Angels is fortunate to have many volunteers who have lots of experience assisting the survivors of tornadoes, floods, hurricanes and other natural disasters. We team up with groups on the ground to help as much as we can. This section features "stories of hope" and letters generated from the survivors in response to our assistance.
