What you’ll do

In one day, a single volunteer with no previous construction experience can mud and spackle several rooms, install a new floor, or paint a small house. Imagine what’s possible in two days--or two weeks, or a month?

In this experience, you will help rebuild one of the nonprofit's long-term recovery operations. Opportunities are located in Puerto Rico, Houston, or Southeast Louisiana (New Orleans and Houma.) Their experienced site supervisors will train and equip you for your volunteer experience, and your safety is their top priority.

As a volunteer, you will literally help rebuild a family’s home. This work may include hanging insulation or drywall, mudding, spackling, sanding, texturing, priming, painting, laying floors, and/or hanging trim, doors, and baseboards.
