Gulf Coast


Many years after Hurricane Katrina, NC State continues to work alongside those impacted by the storm. CSLEPS made a commitment to be engaged in the Gulf Coast recovery until the need for affordable housing was met. So we have partnered with Bayou Area Habitat for Humanity to provide decent, affordable housing in partnership with families in need in Lafourche and Terrebonne Parishes.

“Best Monday of My Life”

For our days off we went on a swamp tour, the French Quarter, and a bike tour of the 9th Ward. The swamp tour was a lot of fun. It was really cool to see the more rural side of New Orleans. You could be out in the middle of the woods, then 30 min

Day 1: Accomplishments

03.04.2012

Such an incredible first day! It was not what I expected at all, but was so much better! The team was split up into two groups: ground and roof. The house had all walls put up and the frame for the roof assembled, so putting up the rest of the roof was the top priority.
