SAFER depends on volunteerism to operate effectively. Without a continual presence of volunteers on our work sites SAFER would not be able to rebuild homes in New Orleans at an affordable price, which is often the difference between a family rebuilding and giving up on their home.

SAFER volunteers learn a variety of construction skills from a young, but well-trained crew of full time volunteer leaders. Their work can save a New Orleans family thousands in labor costs, and usually takes only a few months to complete. SAFER volunteers show that a small, determined group can offer real help to a community by working together to acquire the necessary resources as well as find people willing to pitch in their time.

Please review the work crew information page for information regarding what to wear, a description of our work, and other relevant information. If you plan to join a crew, please email Rachel, our volunteer coordinator, at volunteer@safernola.org with your name and the date you plan to participate.
