  • At the Moontown Foundation, envision a society steeped in core sustainability values. Thus, our mission is to create experiential education and leadership development opportunities in environmental, social and economic sustainability for historically disadvantaged urban youth and young adults.
  • The government and media both warned people to evacuate the city and move to inland or to higher ground. By any means necessary, to leave town. For those with access to a vehicle, gas money, a place to stay and the funds to carry them over for a 3-5 days, they left.
