Learning from Katrina: Addressing local needs while responding to the
Hurricanes and earthquakes have shaken the country and the nonprofit
sector. How do we move forward in this volatile climate?
Hurricane Katrina has left huge challenges in its wake. Nonprofits
throughout the U.S. must help Gulf Coast evacuees assimilate into local
communities, and must better prepare for local disasters. They also
must ask donors who have contributed to Katrina relief efforts to dig
even deeper to tackle critical community problems like poverty and
change public policies on a broad range of social issues.
