St. Bernard Parish remains one of the most devastated communities in the aftermath of hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Located to the southeast of New Orleans, St. Bernard suffered significant structural damage to 100% of its residential and commercial units, rendering them completely uninhabitable.
One Brick will be working with the incredible nonprofit organization: The St. Bernard Project
We won't know specifically what we will be working on until we arrive. However, no building experience is necessary, as there will be on-site training and supervisors there to help guide us.
On your first day, you will receive your assigned task on the project home, and be trained for that task. We ask that you please continue working at the same home until that stage of the project is completed. This ensures forward progress on the home without re-training volunteers daily. Typical tasks include: hanging drywall, installing flooring, painting trimwork, and mold remediation.
