    Domestic Program: St. Bernard’s Parish, Louisiana

This is a trip to St. Bernard’s Parish, Louisiana. It is a parish right outside of New Orleans. We will be working with the St. Bernard Project. The trip will focus on rebuilding, both homes and people’s lives, to help restore some hope in New Orleans. We will have the opportunity to work directly with the homeowners to help them get a life back, starting at their home. Our efforts will bring them closer to getting the city they have always known and loved back. The proposed dates are March 8 through March 15.
