  • 10th Annual Nun's Build

11/13/2017 08:00 AM - 11/16/2017 08:00 PM

Each year, Sisters from across the country, along with their friends and families come to New Orleans to help rebuild a city now in the 12th year of its projected 20-year recovery. 

Skilled on-site supervisors teach volunteers everything they need to know. No construction experience necessary. Sisters of all skill levels are encouraged to participate.

Help rebuild for families still struggling to return home 12 years after Katrina. Help address the housing crisis left in Katrina's wake by transforming abandoned and blighted lots into affordable homes for 1st time home buyers. 

The people of New Orleans need your help! Come volunteer and let this city welcome you the way only New Orleans can!
