Hurricane Ida, one of the strongest hurricanes ever to make landfall in the United States, plunged large parts of Louisiana and Mississippi into darkness and destroyed many homes and businesses.
Jewish communities and others have significant needs in terms of shelter, recovery, aid, and rebuilding. As a collective, Jewish Federations are there, delivering emergency relief support to all those who have suffered most from the damage.
Local Federations and network communities in Louisiana and other potentially affected states laid the groundwork for a response ahead of the storm, while Federations in neighboring states are preparing support in the forms of hot food, supply drives, temporary housing and childcare, coordination with aid organizations, and satellite services.
