Volunteers from Catholic Charities Archdiocese of New Orleans are providing meals, cleaning supplies and mosquito repellent to people in need, continuing CCANO's mission of service to the poor and vulnerable by providing services to those suffering the effects of Hurricane Isaac and caring for those recovering from the flooding and wind damage caused by last week's storm. CCANO has determined 6 priority areas to establish CCANO services for those most in need:

1. St. John the Baptist Parish (LaPlace)

2. Plaquemines Parish

3. Lafitte

4. Slidell/Madisonville

5. St. Bernard

6. Venetian Isles area of Orleans Parish

Catholic Charities is assessing the possibility of ramping up Operation Helping Hands. In the wake of Hurricane Katrina's flooding, OHH gutted nearly 2000 homes of the elderly, poor and disabled. Hundreds of homes were rebuilt and repainted, allowing people to return home.
