Transcript e only packed three days worth of clothing—shorts, jeans, and tshirts" said Dr. Faye Jones, UH Human Development and Family Studies professor. Dr. Jones thought they would return home soon after evacuating. When she realized they were not, she broke down and cried. Her husband, who is a marine, was not able to be there with his family because he had to take the ship away from the dock. She described how frightening it was for him not only to be away from his family, but to have no idea where they were. "Everything began to break down, cell phones did not work, so we could not get through to let him know that we were all right" she said. They came to Houston seeking shelter at the Reliant Center. Then they stayed with cousins for a month. After that, they lived in a hotel for a while, but finally got a house. Dr. Jones stated how devastating this rocky transition was for her and her children. "We had nothing other than what we had on our backs? "We had to depend on others for support for necessities such as clothes and food" said Jones. But hope began to brew when at last her husband was finally able to contact her. Jones mentioned that he was only able to visit for one day, but that time spent was invaluable. On her first visit home, she didn't cry because her husband was able to visit their home beforehand in order to survey the damage; therefore, she was already prepared for what she was about to see. She described how everything downstairs had been destroyed. The water from the flood had sat on the first floor of their home for three weeks and mold had set in by the time they were able to get there. Schools were severely damaged as well, so she started to seek employment in Houston. Dr. Jones worked in the New Orleans Public School District and taught graduate level Special Education courses at Xavier University. "Thanks to Dr. Jacqueline Hawkins, Dr. Jimmy Lindsey and Dr. Laine Gauthier, I was able to obtain a position at the University of Houston" she said. Dr. Jones and her family have future plans of staying in Houston because they have neither a home nor jobs in New Orleans. But despite remnants of what the most destructive and costliest natural disaster in the history of the U.S. left behind, there are stories of hope and progress such as the one shared by Dr. Jones.
