Trip Dates – March 20-25, 2017
Trip Description – With many families and individuals left without a home following the brutal storms along the Gulf coast, the Real Break New Orleans team will put love into action and build hope by offering relief to those affected by these natural disasters. This trip brings together OCF with IOCC and Habitat for Humanity, to provide an opportunity for college students to change a family’s life by building a home. Students need to be prepared for 4 days of hard work, as the team will be working outside. They will be doing anything from laying cement and building frames to roofing and painting.
The goals of this trip are to assist in building a home, witness firsthand the damage done by natural disasters, interact with families who have lost their homes, and enter into a daily life of prayer and hard work with other college students from across the country. Students will also have the opportunity to experience local New Orleans culture through food and music.
