Katrina

As the gravity of the situation in New Orleans becomes more apparent, lots of groups are reaching out to help. Moveon.org has set up an online tool for folks in the Southeast to offer emergency housing to hurricane victims who desperately need a bed and a roof. The aftermath of Katrina has created tens of thousands of newly homeless families, and there are not enough official shelters to meet the need.

You can post your offer of housing (a spare room, extra bed, even a decent couch) and search for available housing online here:
