ALL HANDS VOLUNTEERS
LOUISIANA FLOOD RESPONSE
WE NEED MORE VOLUNTEERS
AND YOU CAN HELP!
All Hands Volunteers arrived in Louisiana on March
17, 2016, just days after the flood, in response to
the needs of communities that were devastated
by flooding. Since then, we have gutted 66 homes
for 66 families and sanitized 23 more from mold
growth. Our teams are out in the field every day;
sanitizing and “mucking and gutting” homes.
There is still so much more work to be done and
we need volunteers like you to do it. No skills are
required. We teach everything on site and provide
tools, protection gear and lunch on base.
In the process, we are honored to have partnered
with numerous community and religious groups
including; American Red Cross, United Way,
Catholic Charities, The Southern Baptist
Convention, Manna Ministries, The Church of
Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Washington
Emergency Recovery Ongoing Cadre,
and the Epworth Project.

WHAT MAKES ALL HANDS
We Rebuild Together with Local Homeowners
and Community Members: A key objective for
All Hands Volunteers is to work together with
members of the community. We also offer job
training opportunities and certification programs
according to the needs of the community.
We are all about Creative Problem Solving:
Every disaster brings unique challenges. We
discover the specific needs of those whom we
serve and create solutions to fit those needs...
not the other way around.
We Focus on the Greatest Need: While
there are almost always multiple communities
heavily impacted by a natural disaster, All Hands
Volunteers is deeply committed to fleshing out
the most under-served communities which are
often outside of the public eye.
We Collaborate with Local, National, and
International Partners: We recognize that local
organizations understand the needs of their
communities better than we do so we work
with, and not against, them.
We Solve for the Long Term: All Hands Volunteers
doesn’t just respond to the initial damage sustained
by disaster, we stay onsite and rebuild as long
as the need exists. All Hands Volunteers averages
148 days on a project and, as such, always have
an eye toward the long term.
We Provide a Free, Open Door for Every
Volunteer: All Hands Volunteers strongly believes
in the untapped power of the individual when
driven by a desire to make a difference. We take
a unique approach and accept spontaneous
volunteers from any background, providing
on-the-job training free of charge. This broadens
our capability to help those in distress, offers a
transformative experience to those who serve
with us, and brings a wider pool of skills to the
We Learn from Those We Serve: In the process
of responding, rebuilding, and renewing the
communities that we serve, we are transformed
by the resilience, hope, and strength we find in
the hearts of the people we meet in the process.
That is why All Hands Volunteers isn’t just about
responding or rebuilding after a disaster. We’re
about rebuilding hope in all of us.
