Camp Coast Care is a Christian community of faith that provides
welcome and hospitality to any volunteer wishing to serve in the
Hurricane Katrina recovery effort. Camp Coast Care operates a
recovery and reconstruction mission for those in need on the
Mississippi Gulf Coast.

Camp Coast Care is located on the campus of Coast Episcopal
School at 5065 Espy Avenue, Long Beach, MS. Since the first
days after Hurricane Katrina, we have offered help to survivors
in the from of a distribution center for food, cleaning supplies,
personal hygiene products, clothing, and free medical services.
Camp Coast Care has also hosted thousands of volunteers from all
over the world that have come to clean out and rebuild lives,
homes, and communities.

We continue to adapt the needs of the people affected by Hurricane
Katrina. Our focus has settled to the construction and rebuilding
needs of the community. Volunteer work crews composed of all levels
in skilled labor in the areas of sheetrock installers, carpenters,
roofers, plumbers, electricians as well as unskilled labor are
organized daily to go out into the communities to help residents.
There are also on-campus jobs for volunteers that are vital to camp
campus life. These include social work intake, kitchen and dining
room assistants, facility and grounds maintenance, data entry, and
general office work.

Camp Coast Care is a mission point of the Lutheran and Episcopal
Disaster Response (LEDR), an outreach of the Lutheran and Episcopal
Services in Mississippi (LESM).

Lutheran and Episcopal Services in Mississippi (LESM), a faith-based
initiative, 501(c)3, serves as an instrument seeking to bring dignity,
healing, justice, hope, and encouragement to all people. LESM manages
and conducts numerous programs in children�s education, restorative
justice, and disaster response.
