Volunteer Construction Team

We need you to join us in Louisiana and help rebuild homes and restore lives for families devastated by Hurricane Harvey.

Do you remember two summers ago when Hurricane Harvey made headline news across the country? Although you don't hear about it in the news anymore, families continue to suffer from the devastating impact of that massive storm.

Did you know?

  • Hurricane Harvey is the second most expensive storm in U.S. history costing over $125 billion in damages.
  • Hurricane Harvey damaged more than 200,000 homes, and more than 700,000 people asked for help from FEMA.
  • Hurricane Harvey caused serious damage in Louisiana, not just in Houston, Texas.

We are continuing the rebuilding process in Louisiana, and we need your help. We deployed three volunteer teams in 2018 to the Lake Charles area in western Louisiana. We rebuilt 5 homes that were devastated by Hurricane Harvey. We need volunteers of all skill levels, with a preference for roofers, drywallers, and those with finish carpentry experience.

In just one week, YOU can help the elderly, disabled, and low-income families, who do not have the resources to recover on their own, get back into their homes.

There is a $150 participation fee. Flights to/from Louisiana and transportation for your week long stay are paid for. Accommodations are included.
