OfficialDisasterRelief.com Launches as Resource for Disaster Victims

ORLANDO, FL -- (MARKET WIRE) -- September 14, 2005 -- Following the torrential devastation from Hurricane Katrina, OfficialDisasterRelief.com assists victims in turning their lives around and lifting spirits. The website provides links to finding missing loved ones, personal care counselors, the Federal Emergency Management Agency, the Red Cross, weather updates and tips to starting over.

Set to launch in mid-October, OfficialDisasterRelief.com opened one month early, making their list of assistance and services available as soon as possible to the victims of Hurricane Katrina. "So many people are in need right now, but have no idea where to turn," commented Nancy Hendony, Director of OfficialDisasterRelief.com. "Our hope is that they will use our site as a guide to get back on their feet and return their lives to normal as much as possible."

As Hurricane Katrina has put thousands out of school at the dawn of the new fall semester, OfficialDisasterRelief.com shows options to attend colleges around the country waiving application fees and reaching out to displaced students. "We've found many sites that offer options many might not even know are available," continued Hendony. "Like continuing or even beginning your college education." Victims of disasters will find referrals to agencies helping with debt relief, organizations with free personal care counselors, as well as resources for single mothers.

OfficialDisasterRelief.com will remain available for all victims in need of rebuilding their lives from disasters. "Our deepest sympathy goes to the victims and OfficialDisasterRelief.com will do our best to assist in any way we can," Hendony said.
