ABSTRACT: The vision of Injury Free Coalition for Kids is that children and families will live in safe communities; our mission is to create them. After the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina, members of Injury Free Coalition for Kids went to Biloxi, Miss, to develop a coalition of community stakeholders in order to build playgrounds for 2 neighborhoods in Biloxi. As child advocates, we know that play is the work of children, and through play, children exposed to disaster can rediscover joy.
