After Nate Berkus made over her parents' house, Desperate Housewives's Eva Longoria and her boyfriend, NBA star Tony Parker, were so inspired that they donated $50,000 to the Angel Network to sponsor a Katrina Home.
Eva wanted to do more, though. Now that the home they sponsored is built, she flew to Dothan, Alabama, to help the new owner, Anya, settle in.
Anya and her young son fled New Orleans, first to Texas before moving again to Alabama. "Hurricane Katrina took away family, it took away friends," she says. "It took away life as we knew it."
