===========================================

Q: Describe your sleeping facilities:

A: We have 12 beds (bunk style) in the main dormitory room.
We also have extra space for air matresses/cots (church has
6 on hand) but groups should contact us about their trip before
assuming that this space will be available. Rooms are unisex.

Q: Does the dorm have showers/bathrooms? (how many?):

A: Yes, 1 shower (for larger groups we have access to the
local YMCA for extra showers). Bathrooms we have 4 stalls
for men, 6 stalls for women, and one unisex bathroom.

Q: Are meals served for volunteers?:

A: The church provides one day of breakfast, and at least one
dinner. If groups need more meals, contact the church to
discuss possibilties.

Q: If no meals, do you have kitchen facilities for volunteers to
prepare their own meals?:

A: We have a kitchen, but no stove. We do have electic burners,
grills, microwave, refrigerator, dishwasher, sink, dishes and
flatware.

Q: Does Univ. Presbyterian Church have a rebuilding program and
will volunteers be given work orders through the church or is
this strictly housing for volunteers?:

A: We do organize trips upon request. We often work with youth
groups who cannot gut due to age limitations, but are able to do
other hurricane relief work around Baton Rouge. If groups already
have a mission trip planned, and just need a place to stay, that
is fine too.

Q: Is there a list of your churches needs (ie. building
materials, distribution items for the community, etc.)?:

A: No - but if you want to bring something, contact the church for
details prior to your trip.

Q: Is your church doing any community distribution?:

A: No


Q: Do you allow underage volunteers? If so, what are the
specific age restrictions?:

A: We try to limit the groups to having members of at least senior
high age. We would expect that any senior high group would come
accompanied by sufficient adult supervision (try for 1 adult to 5
senior highs)

Q: Do volunteers need to provide their own bedding?:

A: We provide bedding for the bunks, but if bedding is borrowed,
we expect volunteers to launder, fold and bag the bedding just as
it was found. Some volunteer groups find it easier to just bring
their own as they leave early in the morning and do not have time
to do laundry.

Q: Do volunteers need to pay a fee for staying at the dorm? What
does the cost include if so?:

A: Stay is free.

Q: Do volunteers need to provide their own transportation?:

A: Yes

Q: Does your church have a website address?:

A: Yes. Please visit: www.upcbr.org and click on "hurricane relief"
to see information, policies, and waivers for the dormitory

OTHER NOTES: Additional programs the church has been involved in
have been running several summer camps for relocated children
over the summer '06 (Camp Noah) and other programs as well.
