One Albemarle County woman who's used to helping victims of crime just returned from helping victims of Katrina.
Susan Painter, who works in the victim's assistance unit of the Albemarle County police department, used her skills to help Katrina victims cope with their loss.
She says she saw this as a learning experience and Mississippi residents just need to feel comfort.
"They were very very appreciative and very grateful for people volunteering from other states to help them out so I think that meant a lot to them just to be there," said Painter
Painter spent one week in Mississippi and she says it was a very moving experience.
