Hello. ACORN is the Association of Community Organizations for
Reform Now. We are a social justice group that is based in New
Orleans, La. and has blossomed into an international
organization. We are looking for volunteers to work with our
Home Clean Out and Yard Maintenance Programs. Home Clean Out
Volunteers will gut houses that were damaged during Hurricane
Katrina in 2006 (this is for volunteers over the age of 18
only). Yard Maintenance Volunteers (no age requirement) will
be working outside cutting grass, cleaning entire blocks in
the lower ninth ward, cutting shrubs, and periodically painting
playgrounds. Both programs are accepting volunteers through
the summer and fall. We are also in need of a steady office
volunteer for the remainder of the summer(someone who could
work three or four days a week from 9-3). Please e-mail if
interested and thank you so much.

-----------------------------------------------------

At 29 years of serving the New Orleans area, New Orleans ACORN
(The Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now)
members are proud to organize to make New Orleans a better
place to live. In addition to providing free tax services,
New Orleans ACORN is a leading organization in the area of
Living Wages, Lead Poisoning Prevention, Katrina Recovery
and Voting Rights.

Taking Action to Rebuild New Orleans:

ACORN's Home Clean-Out Demonstration Project in New Orleans,
Louisiana cleans out homes flooded from Hurricane Katrina,
preventing further deterioration. We focus on 4 low- and
moderate-income communities in New Orleans.

We are seeking volunteers to join our work crews to help
clean these homes, help in our office to support this project,
or to outreach to the community with information about this
free program.

We can provide free housing to those who require it if you
contact us at least 2 weeks in advance of your arrival.

Skills

A positive attitude and willingness to help is all we require.
Construction skills are a plus.
