Break Description

Come join us as we aid in the long-term recovery of the Lower Ninth ward of New Orleans. The area is still rebuilding after hurricane Katrina in 2005, which declared 100% of homes in this ward uninhabitable. Since then Lower Nine, a non-profit organizations whose mission is to bring families back home, has rebuilt 84 homes and reconstructed over 200. In New Orleans, we look forward to spending a week helping to furthering their efforts to rebuild and refurbish Katrina-damaged homes. We plan on taking part in landscaping, lot clearing, reconstruction, and other efforts to rebuild the infrastructure and the morale of the Lower Ninth Ward.
