While looking for a job earlier this year, Shareki Chaney, 26, kept busy by volunteering at her son's public charter school. Now Chaney has a new job as a Volunteer in Service to America. She is one of 17 AmeriCorps VISTAs who are newly assigned to community groups, schools, nonprofits and government agencies throughout Baltimore. Technically, VISTAs aren't volunteers, because they get a stipend of $13,300 for 12 months, or 105 percent of the poverty level in Baltimore. The pay isn't much, but for Chaney, it's all good.

Now the Central Maryland Red Cross is helping to pioneer another form of aid -- help for the emotional trauma that often afflicts people touched by disasters. These needy people fall into two categories: primary victims, who are directly affected by the disaster, and secondary victims, including families and members of the community in which the disaster occurred as well as the rescue workers who respond to the crisis.
