Support RHINO




Rebuilding Hope in New Orleans (RHINO) is an outreach ministry of St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church. We seek to provide meaningful service opportunities in New Orleans for volunteers from all over the nation. Since opening our doors in October 2005, we have welcomed over 6,000 volunteers from various national organizations and built 33 homes through Habitat for Humanity, as well as partnered with The New Orleans Mission, Second Harvest Food Bank, Magnolia Community Services, and Parkway Partners to rebuild hope in many different ways all over New Orleans!

We actively work to help New Orleans residents restore their lives both physically and spiritually alongside our nationwide partners. We welcome volunteers from September through June. Please take a moment to learn more about who we are and what we do by perusing our website. If you have further questions or would like to schedule a trip, please contact RHINO Ministry Director Emma Pegues via e-mail or call (504) 897-0101 ext. 111.

Why work with RHINO? See this RHINO trip video from First Presbyterian Church, Sarasota Florida and you'll understand why they keep coming back to help rebuild New Orleans!

RHINO wrote the book! The congregational book of disaster relief! Are you thinking about starting a rebuilding ministry at your church? The "RHINO: How to Manual" is now available.  For more information on this manual, please email Emma Pegues for more information.
