United Cajun Navy knows that our strength lies not only in the words we stand by, but most importantly through the actions of our initiatives. We are a 501(c)3 registered nonprofit organization focused on helping make the world around us a better place. With the help of our tireless staff and volunteers, we organize search and rescue teams during natural disasters. We provide relief efforts through fundraisers, community building events, and in-depth training sessions for our volunteers.
Since officially receiving 501c3 status in 2018 United Cajun Navy has responded to disasters in North Carolina, Florida, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Alabama, Louisiana, and we are currently (March 10 2020) assisting Tennessee in relief & recovery efforts from the tornado outbreak of March 3rd. We are an ALL volunteer organization, we specialize in civilian response, search & rescue, points of distribution, rebuild. We like to say that we "Search Rescue Supply & Rebuild Like a Cajun" in reference to the Louisianan ability to recover from natural disasters such as Katrina and the 2016 Flooding. As we head into the 2020 Hurricane season we are looking for volunteers interested in supporting our social media accounts, dispatching thru satellite links, phone apps, and/or zello, entering, verifying, & following up on rescue and supply tickets, administrative duties, boots on the ground first responders with training, chainsaw crews, boat crews, the list is honestly endless. We ALWAYS need dedicated volunteers who are willing to be either BOTG or work remotely from home manning their phones and computers to save & change lives. As a veteran of Hurricane Harvey rescue & dispatch I personally would've never believed the difference you can make in a major natural disaster through the use of phone and/or computer sitting in your home far away from the event. It changed my life - let me help you change yours!
