Advocates for Galveston’s low-income and homeless population say those struggling before the storm — the indigent, working poor, homeless, elderly and disabled — will have the hardest time rebuilding their lives because Ike wiped out not only their homes, but the resources they relied on to survive. The same scenario played out in New Orleans — where poverty was just as prevalent — after Hurricane Katrina, advocates there say.
