In Pass Christian, just about the only structure that survived Katrina is Delisle Elementary School. According to Ramona Berry, the principal at Delisle Elementary, 86 percent of her students, as well as many of the teachers, are living in temporary housing.

"I just never would have thought that five months later things would still be like they are," Tracy Partridge, a second grade teacher at Delisle says. "Here I am, a Mississippi school teacher, and I'm on welfare."

Some of that temporary housing in Pass Christian is in a place called "The Village." The people living there, Lisa says, refer to it as "Tent City."
