Thank you for your interest in our program.  We appreciate all the help, and could never make the change we seek without the able hands of volunteers.


We have been present in the city of New Orleans since Hurricane Katrina.


We welcome all volunteers, skilled and unskilled. We can train you on anything you don’t know! Individuals under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian.

Because of this we need to hire more staff during that period, and therefore charge a higher price during the month of March.

Accommodations are dormitory style apartments.  Volunteers will sleep on bunk beds. Volunteers will need to provide their own sheets, sleeping bag, and pillow.


If you are a Long Term Volunteer, some meals will be provided when we have groups in town.  For groups volunteering, meals will be provided for groups of 8 or more.  We also receive some donations of food periodically including Whole Foods Bakery.

Work Clothes, Saftey

Volunteers are asked to bring their own safety glasses, hearing protection and work gloves to insure safety on the project sites.
