New York, NY - The New York Salvation Army is calling on all New Yorkers to remember the victims of hurricane Katrina this holiday season. Divisional Commander Guy Klawoski says there are 120 relocated families living in New York who need clothes, appliances and jobs.

"We would be happy to connect the hurricane victims and any potential employer to help these folks have gainful employment."

In New Orleans, the reconstruction is moving slowly. According to Amy Liu of the Brookings Institution, there are still missing people, children separated from their parents and a pressing housing shortage.

"Because of the limited supply of housing at this time, even people who wanted to come back would have a really hard time finding places to live."

Malaak Compton-Rock, the wife of comedian Chris Rock, is asking all New Yorkers to pitch in this holiday to specifically help the children affected by hurricane Katrina. She says children are being raised by siblings and are not going to school.

"Only half the schools are open. Still only half the hospitals are open. The mental health services are depleted."

Amy Liu's latest Katrina recovery report is online at www.brookings.edu.

You can help by calling the Children's Defense Fund at 1-800-233-1200. To help Katrina evacuees in New York, call the Salvation Army at 1-800-SALARMY.
