An Offer to House Katrina Evacuees

By Dan T. Rosenbaum

This is isn't about the NBA, but I was hoping that maybe one of the folks who read my blog might be able to help with this.

With the devastation due to Katrina and the tens (if not hundreds) of thousands of evacuees, my wife and I would like to offer our home to house a family. We are not rich, but we a large guest bedroom that would comfortably fit a family of three (maybe four). We have a five month-old so we would be pretty well set-up to house an infant, if need be.

It is looking like it might be months before people are able to go back to New Orleans and some of the other affected areas, and we would hope that living in a home (rather than a shelter) might give folks some sense of normalcy. Also, we can offer some assistance if the refugee family needs to be flown here to Greensboro.

Please e-mail me (available here) if you can provide any assistance on this. And if anyone else sees this post and realizes that they may be able to make a similar offer, that would be great.

Here are some sites where you can do just that.

Please help in posting these links.
