Housing Options 

As you are well aware, Hurricane Isaac brought much devastation to areas around the region.  As you connect with volunteers around the country that want to come to help, you may need housing for them.  Here are several locations that have housing available.  By the way, it’s also a great time also for our local churches that weren’t affected to “pay the love forward.”
Celebration Church

We will house adult work teams for the purpose of recovery restoring of homes and churches.  We will be providing housing only for a small charge per night per person. If you know of any teams that need housing you tell them to email Toni Collins at

Camp Hope

We are a volunteer housing facility located in Arabi, LA. The building itself was an elementary school before Katrina and has since been renovated and used to serve thousands of volunteers. Our mission is to serve those who've come to serve our community. We provide dorm-style living and can accommodate up to 325 guests at one time. We also have hot showers, a community dining hall, TV, Wi-fi and laundry facilities. We charge a small fee per night per person, which includes three meals a day Monday through Friday, and breakfast/lunch only on the weekend.
