hello there-

i have volunteered with Hands on Network (Biloxi, MS) and Hands on New Orleans twice in 2006 and had AMAZING experiences...food and lodging, and most incidental costs (like sunblock, topical medication) are covered, all you need to do is provide for your own transport to get there. you can go alone, go with a few others, or go in a big group for any lenght of time. It's a really great volunteer environment and you sign up daily for projects that range from tutoring to debris removal to social outreach.

check it out:
www.handsonneworleans. org
www.handsonnetwork. org

Enjoy!!

I've been volunteering in the Gulf for the past year and a half. I've been to New Orleans, Waveland Miss, Port Arthur Texas and Fort Pierce Florida (which is actually the Pacific, but still affected by the hurricanes. If you have any questions at all with volunteering here, I'd be more than happy to answer them.
