A Story of Gratitude
Volunteers of America Greater New Orleans’s Katrina story, told by President and CEO Jim LeBlanc. His first-person account shows how, thanks to many dedicated staff and new friends, we safely evacuated all persons with disabilities in our care and helped others we serve to safety. Our story is one of survival and gratitude, that shows how deeply God blessed us during the catastrophe by placing friends and supporters in our path to light the way.
