New Orleans, soon!

I'm getting very excited to leave Maryland and head back down to the gulf-- the culture there is so friendly and casual. I'm excited to be working with teens from the city, in their own city. We will be together 24 hours a day....

Stealing from my friend Christiane's blog, these are the organizations some of us will be working with:

Just the Right Attitude & Catholic Charities: food banks

Audubon Institute & NORD: park/zoo maintenance, painting, and city clean up

Northside Disaster Recovery: rebuilding homes

Hope Has A Face: community beautification/post-construction clean-up

Animal Rescue New Orleans: cleaning, playing with pets, giving baths, etc.

Ozanam Inn: preparing/serving meals and maintenance at homeless shelter

ARC: working with adults with disabilities on creative projects

lowernine.org: hanging drywall, door/window installation

care-a-lot: lawn maintenance for homeowners who have not returned to new orleans (helps them avoid city fines and beautify community)

Rebuilding Together: restoring existing new orleans homes, warehouse work

Dillard University: plainting/grounds maintenance from katrina damage
