Hurricane Program Aimed at Children, Teens

By Alabama Public Radio

Montgomery, AL – Alabama mental health officials have announced a new program designed to help children and teens traumatized by Hurricane Katrina. The program, titled Rainbows After the Storm, will provide professional counseling for children who evacuate to Mobile County from the hurricane-ravaged Gulf Coast. The program is in the works by the Child Advocacy Center and Mobile Mental Health. Officials say they are assessing the need and don't have a firm estimate on the number of evacuees who may need the service.
