USA (MNN) -- CityTeam's Disaster Response Team still needs volunteers to help rebuild lives and homes in the Gulf Coast.
Two years ago, they responded to Hurricane Katrina's devastation by providing shelter, food, water, counseling, and a long-term rebuilding plan. And for two years, CityTeam volunteers have lived in a baseball field called "Field of Dreams."
Today, there are still families living in emergency trailers in Bay St. Louis. People of the community share with one another their rebuilding efforts, as well as need for labor, building materials, or appliances.
People also share their frustrations and fears and have a volunteer listen to them. As a result, what was a unique kind of "refugee camp" has ultimately become a place where the community can heal.
Richard Williams, VP of Disaster Response for CityTeam, says their teams have rebuilt 130 homes along the Gulf. However, he adds, "I can't count the thousands of people we have helped on a daily basis with multiple services or home repairs, even today, two years after the disaster."
CityTeam focuses on helping one person at a time with
physical, emotional and spiritual needs. But they also
specialize in long-term disaster recovery along with the immediate relief. If you can be the hands and feet of Christ, click here .
