Considering the amount of work that still needs to be done a year later, George Duffee-Braun, a PDA construction coordinator, said seven years is not unreasonable.
"I think seven years is probably a good target," Duffee-Braun said.
"They're still doing recovery in Florida from three-four years ago," Duffee-Braun said.

"It's difficult for a lot of people because they don't have places to live and they don't have jobs because they don't have some where to live," said George Duffee-Braun, a construction site coordinator with the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance, adding that the difficulty in finding or rebuilding damaged housing is exacerbated by the bureaucratic red tape that's holding up grants, and insurance claims.

"It did bring out the best in people," said George Duffee-Braun, construction coordinator for the Presbyterian Disaster Assistance program.
Working the PDA, Duffee-Braun had the opportunity to see what the storm could have done to the faith of the community and also what a person's faith can do to a storm.
"There was basically 2 to 3 feet of water across the whole complex," Duffee-Braun said from inside the Presbyterian church in Gautier where he attended Sunday with the Marietta volunteers.
Like Partridge's church, Duffee-Braun found that a building was not as important in the aftermath of Katrina.
What was important was making sure everyone was safe and healing.
"Chris, our pastor, made a point to go see everybody, not just call them, but see them, face-to-face," Duffee-Braun said.

Even those homes not totally destroyed by Katrina are in a quandary, according to George Duffee-Braun, a PDA construction coordinator, since the few contractors around are already hired by the wealthier residents or commercial property owners.The rest of the rebuilding work has been done largely by faith-based groups.
"There's an appearance that everything is fine, but there's work (to be done) from cleaning up houses to finishing up houses," Duffee-Braun said, shortly after greeting the Marietta volunteers who attended Sunday service at the Gautier Presbyterian Church.
