A community group called has been one of the most active and visible organizations focused on helping local residents recover from Katrina. The group's work extends to the slow process of renovating the Wesley United Methodist Church, a house of worship built in 1838 by slaves that was in continuous operation until the hurricane hit in August 2005.
Common Ground Relief is trying to get it back into shape, but the group has limited resources and is getting little help from the outside. Volunteers involved in the work are living in the building.
