About the Katrina Evacuee Help Center – The Katrina Evacuee Help Center website was created in response to the need for a centralized “one stop shop” for evacuees, families looking to reunite, and the people working to assist them.
The call went out soon after the hurricane struck, “There are people posting messages in different places all over the Internet, on news sites, and on missing person’s registers.
We need a centralized registry and we need it fast”.
Members of the Joomla!
Open Source community recognized the need and quickly mobilized to develop this site.
This small team of volunteer software developers, web designers, and graphic designers from all around the world have worked around the clock, many taking time off work to develop this site.
