MoveOn.org initiates Katrina survivor housing assistance service too!

For those of us in the South who can offer free housing (temporary and transitional) to Katrina survivors, here is another great site that facilitates the connection of those who have a spare room, extra apartment, couch or floorspace to offer with those who desperately need a roof over their heads as soon as possible:

Hurricane Housing.org is a new "civic action" initiative by the Democracy in Action folks at MoveOn.org.

Last time I checked, over 1100 people had posted an offer of free housing in the N. Texas region within 100 miles of Dallas. Way to go, D/FW! I also noticed that quite a few folks offering housing admitted to being low-income and, often, single moms with limited means.

It really seems that there is a major outpouring of support by those who have little for those who themselves had very little before Katrina.

Be prepared for the next national hurricane or find another one that's similar. As the Boy Scouts say: "Be Prepared"!
