Issues: Disaster Aid, Human Services

Mission: The Community Center of St Bernard is dedicated to empowering survivors of hurricane Katrina and Isaac and the Gulf Oil Spill who are working to rebuild their lives and their communities by facilitating their access to the essential recovery resources they need. In order to effectively fulfill this mission the Center goes beyond merely offering its own programming by actively coordinating a multi-agency collaborative of organizations from across the greater New Orleans area which are invited to provide services at its facility, thereby creating a "one-stop shop" recovery resource center.

For all my friends back in New Orleans - Guten Tag! I miss you all and I am very pleased to write this review to thank you for helping me with my thesis about disaster recovery. You are doing a wonderful job and I am proud to have studied with you. Thank you for letting me observe your work and for taking the time to help me understand what a disaster Katrina was and continues to be. You are to be commended for your ongoing efforts to help those who are still struggling to recover.

Hey guys, greetings from Chicago and glad to write a review to help you all. The Community Center helped my family so much back in 2006 and 2007 when we were trying to get FEMA and Road Home to work with us to get our house gutted and rebuilt. I don't know what we would have done without the computer lab and the free phones and faxing and the legal aid you all had there. I'm in Chicago now finishing up my degree in pre-med and I hope to get into Tulane med school so I'll be back in NOLA next year this time. And I'll probably come by with my sister to volunteer at the toy give away in December so I'll see you then. Thanks again for everything that you have done ever since Katrina.

Love the community center. Hate this website that lost my review so I have to retype it. But the Center is doing good work so I'm willing to try again. Anyway I worked there for week during alternative spring break and the center was almost overwhelmed to the point that some people had to stand in the waiting area because there was no room. But the staff do a great job in spite of being short-handed and they really care so if you are in NOLA and you want to make a difference go there and help for a day. They need the help and you will really know that you've done something that made a difference. Not just a slogan, but for real.

Nice people doing a great job to help families that are disabled or elderly or unemployed. Shame that the local council member there couldn't care less and has such a not-in-my-backyard attitude. But he's a Have so why should he care about the Have-Nots. Anyway this is a great group who do good work in spite of no support and sometimes active antagonism. Keep the faith!

Every winter during semester break I always go to visit my family in New Orleans and we speand a day at the Community Center helping with the food pantry. It is always a fun time. We love the Community Center staff who are mainly volunteers who do this every day just because people need help. They are really inspiring. If you are in New Orleans, be sure to check them out if you have some free time and want to make it mean something.

Thanks for your email and I am glad to write a recommendation for you. It was a very good experience for our youth group to help others at your facility during our spring break this year. So many times we send donations but we never really get to know the people we help. Having the chance to meet the people that benefit from our donations was a very moving experience and hopefully it will inspire the younger members of our team to make service an important part of their lives going forward. God Bless You again for all that you do. Our thoughts and prayers are always with you.

I went down after hurricane Isaac last month. It was great to be able to do something to help. I helped pass out emergency boxes of food for the food pantry and listened to people's stories. They are so brave to keep coming back after everything that has happened to them and I am very glad I was able to do something to help.

My church group went down last year and we helped give out toys for the children at Christmas and it was a lot of fun and the kids were so happy. I hope we can do it again this year.

I work with them every week in the clothing bank. It is really nice to see how we help people who are having problems because they lost their jobs or they are sick or they had a disaster. I am very glad to help here.

I was glad to get the email to ask me to write a comment about them because I helped them with the Toy GiveAway for the kids last year and it was awesome and me and my family will be back to do it again this year.
