Spend the week working in New Orleans, Louisiana with United Saints. United Saints is a grassroots, volunteer-based nonprofit organization working to help restore the homes and hearts of communities affected by natural disasters.
The mission of the United Saints Recovery Project is to assist communities that have suffered damage from natural disasters, helping residents return home, improve their quality of life and strengthen their communities. They do this with the help of local, national, and international volunteers, assisting homeowners in rehabilitating and rebuilding their homes, and engaging those homeowners in our effort to promote volunteerism within the community.
United Saints also hosts a community art program in New Orleans, involving local artists and community members in an effort to beautify and directly improve their environment.
