Volunteers/Recovery

"The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."
Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948)

Volunteers have been essential to Christopher Homes, Inc. since Hurricane Katrina hit in August 2005. Groups from around the country, ranging from youth groups to retired citizens, have graciously given of their time and talents to help Christopher Homes, Inc. residents return to their homes. Thank you to all from the bottom of our hearts.

All of our volunteers have come to us through Catholic Charities Operation Helping Hands.
