Fifty-Eight Days in the Cajundome Shelter by After Hurricanes Katrina and Rita ravaged much of the Louisiana coastline, the Cajundome in Lafayette, Louisiana, was opened as a temporary emergency shelter for a few hundred refugees. However, newly homeless men, women, and children continued to arrive each day in need of food, clothing, and medical attention. This is the struggle of the volunteers and workers at the Cajundome who cared for more than 18,000 evacuees in the devastating aftermath of the hurricanes.
