Host Site

In the early stages of the PSL recovery effort, First Presbyterian Church in Hammond, LA was the first to raise their hand.  Despite the newness and uncertainty of the task, FPC's congregation quickly agreed to host volunteers.  With impressive speed, they assessed the need, made a plan, installed a shower trailer and even rounded up 40 members to help in the operation!  Because of their generosity and determination, volunteers at FPC will enjoy the following:

  • Air mattresses to sleep on
  • A brand new shower trailer
  • Basic breakfast food and snacks
  • Towels/wash cloths provided and laundered by Host volunteers
  • A fully equipped kitchen
  • Leisure - Wifi, TV/DVD player, and fooseball
  • Pure southern hospitality

FPC Hammond can host groups with up to 20 volunteers ages 12 and over. *
*Please note that Work Partners may not permit volunteers under age 16 on the work site.  Make sure you confirm your Work Partner's age policy prior to scheduling your trip.

Work Partner

Ginger Ford Northshore Fuller Center for Housing , faith-driven and Christ-centered, is a non-profit housing ministry serving Tangipahoa and Livingston Parishes.  It is truly a “pay-it-forward” ministry based on the bible verse Acts 20:35 which says “remember the words of the Lord Jesus, ‘it is a greater blessing to give than to receive."

While post-disaster construction has not previously been a need in these parishes, The Fuller Center immediately recognized the need to shift their focus and utilize their years of construction experience to help families rebuild.  To that end, they have expanded their staff to support the volunteer efforts to come.  The first several groups gave The Fuller Center rave reviews and made immediate plans to return.  PSL is excited to welcome them as our Work Partner.

The Fuller center can manage groups of up to 20 volunteers ages 16 and older.  Workdays are Monday through Friday.
