For the staff of Terrebonne Parish’s Terrebonne Readiness and Assistance Coalition (TRAC), the challenge of maintaining long-term, sustainable, and affordable housing is central to recovery efforts. Faced with over 13,000 homes severely damaged or destroyed from hurricanes Katrina, Rita, Gustav and Ike—coupled with a rapidly eroding coastline—TRAC’s challenge is unprecedented. According to Peg Case, TRAC’s executive director, “if housing doesn’t get addressed, we’re going to lose our culture; we’re going to lose our communities.”
