New Home for Katrina family

On the day before Thanksgiving the NOMADS disaster team members were on hand to take part in the presentation of the keys to a new home to a Katrina family.  The homeowner had been living with friends since the hurricane hit the Gulf Coast over five years ago.  The NOMADS provided the labor to complete the home and make it "move in ready" for the family.  There is still much work to be done on the Gulf Coast,  many families are still in need of help.
