Lessons Learned from Faith-Based Disaster Response following Hurricane Katrina [abstract]

These lessons can be applied to other non-governmental and governmental organizations whose primary purpose is to respond to disasters. The purposeof the original study was to explore the experience of faith-based disaster responses for the administrative and paid staff of the FBO, volunteers providing FBO services, and the New Orleans residents receiving FBO services.
