Orleans St_8885d4f9bc. - Al & Mary Polite.jpg

This picture is of Mr. Al & Mary Polite\'s home during the dedication ceremony.\r\n\r\nThe home is on Orleans Ave. and was a joint effort by Project Homecoming, United Way and Phoenix of New Orleans. Volunteers came from all across the country to get the Polites back into their home which they were not able to do themselves do to Al being in a severe car accident after Katrina and Mary being diagnosed with cancer as a result of the FEMA trailer that they lived in.\r\n\r\nBoth are currently recovery well.
