  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.  
   Fall Work Day   

DreamBuilders is leading a Baltimore Project workday on Friday,October 17th, with the help of a team from Kipps Desantoa Virginia-based Investment Banking firm. This group will help rebuild a townhouse destroyed by fire in the Church of the Guardian Angel parish in the Remington section of Baltimore. DreamBuilders has been working on the project over the past two years.  Casey's Crab Co. of Laurel, MD is generously providing lunch for the volunteers. We are grateful for both of these wonderful supporters! 


     A Mason-Dixon Summer    
What a summer it was! In June, we launched two mission trips on the same day at the same time to projects in two locations! While one group caravan-ed north to New Jersey to repair and rebuild 4 homes hit by Hurricane Sandy, a second group headed south to West Virginia for a blitz build.  A parade of vehicles departing from the temple parking lot made quite the send-off. But that's not all...we made history again in August, when yet another group of missioners traveled to White Sulphur Springs, West Virginia for a second Blitz Build at the same home to install cabinets and flooring, along with door trimming, painting, and exterior finishing.
