Hurricanes Laura and Delta devastated southwest Louisiana in the fall of 2020. Many households sustained additional damage during a severe winter storm in February 2021. Volunteer teams will primarily be painting and repairing siding, windows, and doors, as well as replacing drywall, insulation, and flooring. Our local construction partner, Fuller Center Disaster Rebuilders, has reserved the first week of each month for Disciples of Christ mission teams, and we currently have many spots available. Teams (16 people max) will stay at the Celebration Worship Center in Sulphur, LA. Volunteers must be at least 16 years of age; those under 18 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian. A $100 registration fee covers room and board, including breakfast and lunch Monday through Friday and dinner Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday. Week of Compassion Mission Station Volunteer Grants are available if assistance is needed with registration costs.
Interested groups should call or email Rev. Caroline Hamilton-Arnold with their group size and preferred dates, to receive a registration form.
