Hurricanes and Teaching

A recent study shows that 46,000 children along the Gulf Coast are still struggling with mental health problems affecting their abilities to learn.  My heart goes out to those teachers who have these students in their classrooms because they are faced with a big obstacle in their way.  Students who are coming back into classrooms have their mind elsewhere wondering where they are going to live and what the future will hold for them instead of trying to learn Algebra.  How do you help students ease their pain and reassure them that things will get better?  What strategies are there to combat PTSD with students like these?  What can the community do to help these students?  The government?
