Put your God-given talents, gifts and abilities to use in service to those in need throughout the Greater New Orleans area! We welcome mission-trip groups of all ages year-round as we continue to restore faith, home and community in the Name of Jesus in our city.
If your group wants to put your construction skills to use, there are still thousands of homes yet to be restored, especially around Camp Restore in New Orleans East, Lakeview, and the Lower Ninth Ward–some of the neighborhoods hardest-hit by Katrina. We plan to continue our reconstruction efforts until they are no longer needed. We figure that day is still years down the road with around 10,000 damaged and blighted properties left as of 2013.
March 9, 2017- February was a busy month, and that was before the tornado passed by camp! We’re very thankful that there were no fatalities and the damage was somewhat limited in extent. Here are some photos of our volunteers’ experiences last month. Thanks y’all!
Updated March 6, 2017- Shortly before noon on Tuesday, Feb. 7, 2017, an EF3 tornado touched down in New Orleans East and left several miles of destruction in its wake as it followed Chef Menteur Hwy to the east, passing within three blocks of Camp Restore – New Orleans.
