Start and Get Out of the Way

In the area of "Pontilly" (the combined neighborhoods of Pontchartrain Park and Gentilly Woods), a recovery center has opened. The dedicated person began working there within the past couple weeks. She asked residents to volunteer to help with this mapping effort.

She was expecting about 5 people to sign up. Instead she received 10.

In several other neighborhoods, there've been neighborhood meetings and we continue to get interest and offers to help from residents.

How can I get them all started, and then get out of their way?

What do the volunteers need to be productive and help out? A lot of people who read this would like to help out, too, even if we're physically far away from New Orleans ...but there in spirit.

You can't get out of the way yet, you're driving! 8-)

Seriously, you are doing good work
and thanks for posting in the blog.
Let the readers know if we can help.

Ok, I'll stay behind the wheel : )

I'll post more frequently in the coming days, just to give readers a sense of what's happening...

When we're in the field, we are so much in motion, we rarely have a moment to ask for what we need.

Maybe we share more about what's going on, readers can see what we're needing even more than we can...

Thanks for posting!
