Volunteering

Volunteer Housing

Nonprofit and faith-based organizations working in disaster recovery efforts along the Gulf Coast may provide housing for volunteers. The type of housing may vary from a common room with bunk beds and shared bathroom facilities to smaller rooms for teams of volunteers to individual rooms for volunteers. Some organizations may charge a nominal daily or weekly fee to offset the costs of providing housing, and some may offer meals with housing. If you are from outside the Gulf Coast area, please contact the nonprofit or faith-based organization you are interested in volunteering with to ask about housing options. If they do not provide housing, they may be able to connect you with an organization that does.

Housing options currently available (this list may change without notice. Always call and confirm that the housing is still available):
