The Volunteer Village

UPDATE 2/10/17- The Volunteer Village was devastated by a EF-3 tornado on February, 7th around 11:15 am. All staff inside was able to find and interior room to seek shelter from the storm. At this time we will no longer be taking volunteers at the Volunteer Village. 

We are in the process of moving our volunteer housing operation to our office in Gentilly. This space will accommodate 36 volunteers. We will still continue to provide the meals, beds, showers/bathrooms, and managers at this new space.

Volunteer tour is available to volunteers working in the city that are not staying at Project Homecoming’s volunteer housing facility for $5 a person. 

We hope you consider a donation at this time to help make this transition happen. 

For $30 a night, Project Homecoming offers volunteers coming from around the country an affordable and quaint housing facility, the Volunteer Village, located in New Orleans East. The Village can accommodate up to 115 volunteers. We have bunk dorm rooms, provide meals, community spaces, WiFi, and cable.

Our Village Managers coordinate with partner organizations around New Orleans for placement opportunities for your volunteer group. We attempt to make placements upon the groups suggested field of interest.
