As many around the country reflect on memory of Katrina, there’s one group in our area continuing to rebuild the gulf.

The Building Goodness Foundation in Charlottesville has already helped re-build more than 140 new shelters and homes for families in the gulf area since Katrina.

The group, along with members of the community, is headed to Perlington, Mississippi during October.

They will break ground on a new community center during the trip..

“They’ve heard the stories about will these towns ever come back. Should they come back? And yet the people in those communities and the people here have persevered and said we're going to help, we're going to keep moving this forward, we're going to make a difference,” said Executive Director, Brenda Yordy.

The Building Goodness Foundation is a volunteer-based non-profit.
