Since 2005, the Greater New Orleans area has endured several major hurricanes leaving thousands homeless and in great need. Most people are well aware of the damages caused by Hurricane Katrina, but most are not aware of the more than 40,000 homes that were damaged by Hurricane Isaac which impacted our area exactly 7 years to the day Hurricane Katrina struck. With so many weather related disasters over the past several years, Epworth Project exists to keep volunteers from around the country mobilized so that the families in our area will not be forgotten. Our goal is to provide basic needs for those living in unfit conditions, whether the conditions are hurricane related or not. In addition to assisting disaster victims, Epworth Project assists the low income and elderly with home repairs and builds handicapped ramps for disabled citizens.
