  Our N'Awlins Mission Trip  

 Partnering with St. Bernard Project

2014 NOLA house

In late May, a team of missioners partnered with  the St. Bernard Project (SBP) to help rebuild a home in New Orleans. SPB is a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping disaster-impacted communities recover promptly and efficiently. This trip marked the 7th time we worked with SBP, helping Hurricane Katrina Survivors and Opportunity Housing clients rebuild properties. The homeowner evacuated during Hurricane Katrina, only to find that he could not return for many months after the storm. He was finally able to purchase a home  in the Lower 9th Ward, on Royal Street, and he looks forward to moving in soon. Our team of nine worked inside this home--applying joint compound, sanding, and laying bathroom tile. Missioner Buck Lyon-Vaiden discovered common ground with the Americorps supervisor...who had also served in  Burkina Faso in the Peace Corps! (We're not saying how many years apart!) All of our missioners enjoyed the sunny yet breezy weather throughout the week.  
    Thanks for your Support!

Thanks to everyone who helped make our Spaghetti Dinner and Silent Auction a success! We raised over $15,000 to help defray expenses for our 2014 building projects in New Orleans, West Virginia, New Jersey, Baltimore, and Howard County. Whether you planned, organized, donated, cooked, served, bid, hauled, set up, tore down, ate, bought, or sold--it is very much appreciated!
