Katrina volunteers' work on the coast is done?

Tens of thousands of volunteers from across the country poured into Mississippi and Louisiana to help people recover from Hurricane Katrina. Now, some are finding their help is no longer welcome.

God's Katrina Kitchen, a faith-based relief operation that has served more than one million meals to the storm's victims and the volunteers who helped them, has been forced to move twice due to neighborhood complaints.

Kentuckian Greg Porter who founded the Kitchen hasn't found a new home for it.

Officials say the roadside-tent operation may have to close at the end of the month.

Similarly, free medical clinics staffed by volunteer doctors have run into resistance from local physicians struggling to resuscitate their practices.
