As soon as Hurricane Katrina made landfall, Volunteers of America was mobilized along the Gulf Coast, serving the needs of our clients while also helping others left in need after the storm. In the years since, we have built hundreds of new homes to replace those destroyed by the storm, becoming one of the leading providers of affordable replacement housing in the region
Uplifting All People
Volunteers of America is the charity that always steps forward to help the most vulnerable. For over 119 years, we have taken on the most difficult tasks to help the most under-served.
