It Takes a Jewish Community: JF&CS comes to the rescue after Hurricane Katrina ruins wedding plans

Mike Skott and Corinne Seltzer were living in New Orleans and planning to get married at Touro Synagogue on November 5, 2005, but their plans changed when Katrina hit. They left New Orleans and ended up in Atlanta, where Mike\'s parents live. Corinne told her story at a gathering for Katrina evacuees, and JF&CS staff members were touched by her story and decided to plan her dream wedding in Atlanta. This article was published in the Atlanta Jewish Times on December 2, 2005.

Well Wishes from Oregon (4)

While working as a case manager for Katrina clients at Jewish Family and Career Services in Atlanta, I made contact with a class of 1st graders in Portland, OR. This is one of several cards that they sent for me to give to my clients. More than any financial assistance, material goods, or counseling I could provide, these cards are what brought the most joy to my clients who had lost everything.
