I'm trying to put together a series of stories on New Orleanians who are still not home nearly two years after Katrina. I'm interested in all sorts of people--those who want to come home and can't, those who have landed happily where they are, those who are unsure. The most important thing is that they have a good story and tell it well. My hope is to get on the road next month and visit the people and places with the best stories.

Do you know of any Louisianians who are still away? Do you have contact information on them? Or, do you know of any social service organizations in your area that had worked with our people and therefore might know how to locate folks in the diaspora?

Any leads you have would be greatly appreciated. E-mail sfamail@olemiss.edu with ideas.
