Commemorating Ten Years of Assistance to Areas Affected by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita

From the Desk of Lorna Bourg, President and CEO of Rural LISC Partner CDC Southern Mutual Help Association, Inc. (SMHA), New Iberia, Louisiana

We are approaching the 10 year anniversary of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita.  SMHA remembers LISC for providing resources and support without being asked.

Sandy’s first call to me after the storms was just the beginning.  She wanted me to come to Washington to be mentored by experts and learn how “not to make mistakes” when dealing with disaster. Her networking resulted in major funds for SMHA’s Rural Recovery Response. 

But we remember you for your support to SMHA through the many years of rebuilding.  We especially want to send you a very special thank you for helping SMHA Rebuild Louisiana Better Than Before!

Your support throughout these years helped make it possible!

We Still Remember!
