NEW ORLEANS - Friday's "Concert 4 Flood Relief," organized by Channel 4 and Tipitina's, benefits the United Way. One of the many agencies that the United Way funds is Family Service of Greater New Orleans.
They have an important mission, especially after Hurricane Isaac, to offer mental health counseling in the region.
Ron McClain, the president & CEO of Family Service of Greater New Orleans, joined us to talk more about some of the issues that he is seeing with this storm.
If you feel like you need help dealing with Isaac, or just coping with daily life, you should call United Way's 211 help line. Family service also can offer help at 822-0800 or on their website.
The concert is at Tipitina's Uptown.
There will be music from Mia Borders and the Stooges Brass Band.
Mike Hoss and Laura Buchtel are the hosts on our sister station, WUPL 54.
You can also be part of the live audience. Just donate a non-perishable food item at the door and get free admission starting at 7 p.m.
After 9 p.m., you'll get a discounted $12 admission with a canned good donation.
