Louisiana: Hurricane Relief Program

Overview

Join our team as we work together to rebuild homes in Southwest Louisiana after Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta. Due to the extent of the damage, we have committed to staying in Southwest, LA until September 2021, working to rebuild with the community. You will learn about hand tools, power tools, interior home rebuilds and be part of our Resilient Roof Repair Program. No prior construction experience required; our team of experts will teach you everything you need to know.


Our team is assisting families impacted by both Hurricane Laura and Hurricane Delta, and with the support of AmeriCorps NCCC members and the Veterans Community Group from Washington State, was initially focusing on response activities. In December 2020, we wrapped up our chainsaw and roof tarping work and started a Resilient Roof Repair Program to help assess the long-term recovery needs.

Our efforts are now focused on recovery activities such as rebuilding roofs, replacing damaged insulation and drywall, and other finishing work.
