Our group was looking for a place to help rebuild the Lower Ninth Ward in New Orleans as we were aware that there is still a lot of damage there from Hurricane Katrina. There are a number of groups that do this work - but stay away from this one. The Director is unorganized - didn't have enough work for us - we completed in two days more than they usually do in a week and she ran out of things for us to do. Consequently we didn't end up staying the last day to work. Things are not planned out well - our people repainted the interior of a house 4 times because they kept running out of color and then had to start over. They didn't do prep work - asking us to paint the exterior of a house but didn't bother to remove the wasp nests that were on the eaves. Granted they could use a lot more money for equipment and all, but was left with the distinct impression that the money given might never make it to what it is intended for. Suggest that you stay away from lowernine.org Find another group to work with if you wish to offer services. They just didn't know what to do with 36 people. Also - no bathroom facilities where you work.
