Mission Statement: The mission of the United Saints Recovery Project is to help communities affected by disasters and to revitalize economically distressed neighborhoods. Our focus is to assist the elderly, disabled, and otherwise disadvantaged in rehabilitating and rebuilding their homes, as well as engaging in community service, art, and beautification projects. We do this with the help of local, national, and international volunteers.
More About Us: We are a grassroots, volunteer-based nonprofit organization working to help restore the homes and hearts of communities affected by natural disasters. Our roots are in New Orleans, in the heart of Central City. United Saints also hosts a community art program in New Orleans, involving local artists and community members in an effort to beautify and directly improve their environment. United Saints is a 501(c)(3) organization. Formed in 2007 in New Orleans, the United Saints was born out of a need for assistance following the devastation caused by Hurricane Katrina. Hurricane Katrina struck New Orleans with a devastating blow, one from which the city is still recovering. The housing needs of many residents , especially in the poorer neighborhoods, remain unmet. By providing economically disadvantaged residents with resources and encouragement, we can restore a sense of community pride. As volunteers, we grow personally through the experience of caring, and the giving of our hands and our hearts. The United Saints also worked to assist homeowners in Tuscaloosa, Alabama and surrounding areas after a mile-wide tornado struck the region in April 2011. In the aftermath of the storms, the United Saints were able to mobilize a team of emergency relief volunteers just 4 days after the tornado struck, and were actively providing services in the most crucial time of need. As a result of the impact of our organization and the collective efforts of the community, the United Saints established a satellite office in the city of Tuscaloosa to continue to lead volunteers in rebuilding efforts and strengthen our partnerships with local organizations up until winter of 2013. The United Saints continues to be prepared to respond to natural disasters in our region as well as continually helping community members with repairs on their homes in the New Orleans area. -
