Welcome To The Home Of Katrina's Angels
Celebrating 6th Year of Service to Communities in Need!
Welcome to the new year, 2013!!
Last year was a very difficult one as non-profits scrambled to help the victims of disaster sprinkled throughout our country. There were huge tornadoes in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and Joplin, Missouri ? products of storms also linked to tornadoes and deaths in several other states. There were floods in areas of Iowa, North Carolina, and Virginia and a record flood in Minot, North Dakota that wreaked havoc on a huge area of town. There were wildfires in Texas. Hurricane Irene hit the east coast. Then there was Isaac , SANDY, and now, Moore, Oklahoma! As Katrina’s Angels, we did what we could in terms of providing some small relief to those who lost everything and had to start over. It was a huge job just keeping up with the links to various groups that sprung up on Facebook to connect those in need with those who could help, which we posted on our blog at KatrinasAngelsBlog.
In addition to our Facebook page, KatrinasAngels we also added two pages to Facebook to help with communications: VolunteerOpportunities for volunteering opportunities on the ground in disaster areas, and // Katrina's Angels ~ HurricaneSandy ">KASandy for connecting everyone involved in the continuing problems related to Sandy. All of these pages are available for you to post if you are in need of help, can or want to help, or can provide any information from the moment a disaster occurs.
Smaller, non-profit organizations ? including Katrina’s Angels ? are suffering from the effects of both the recession and the huge costs of helping during some of the worst recent disasters in recent history. Please help us to continue helping others. If we are to answer the call of those in need following any disaster that may hit our country, Katrina’s Angels needs your help more than ever before. Please donate even $1 if you can KatrinasAngelsDonation.

Who We Are
Katrina's Angels is a national volunteer effort that is driven by the generosity of people wanting to make a difference for those communities affected by federally and state-declared disasters. We are committed to providing coordinated solutions to rebuild the lives of those in communities affected by disaster through our volunteers and our partners. Katrina's Angels is incorporated in the State of New York and is registered as a Public Charity 501(c)3. EIN 13-4364286. We need angels willing to lend a hand as well as people willing to coordinate our angels. Please visit our Volunteer Page to join our efforts.
We have had hundreds of volunteers registered in our organization at various times, and a growing list of partners who work together to serve the needs of those people affected by federally and state-declared disasters. Following the hurricanes of 2005, Katrina's Angels had 900+ evacuees and their families register and many families had every one of their needs filled. Even more inspiring are the results we have achieved since that time. To read more accomplishments by our organization and its partners, please visit our Results Page or the Angels in Action Forum .
