Rebuilding Hope In New Orleans
What would we do? You name it, our RHINOs have done it! From working construction on homes with Habitat For Humanity to helping create Mardi Gras favors with adults with developmental disabilities - we let you decide where your passion is in rebuilding hope!
What's our schedule? Lots of good times, great food, and wonderful service! RHINO abides by the work hard, play hard philosophy Monday evening through Sunday morning. Click here to see what a RHINO week looks like!
What should we bring? A great attitude and a willingness to have fun while serving New Orleans! Click here for our "What You Need To RHINO" checklist.
Is there an age requirement? RHINO welcomes all volunteers over 16 years of age as long as they have humble spirits and willing hearts! If you have specific health concerns, please speak with your doctor prior to making a reservation.
What does RHINO cost? RHINO charges $325/volunteer for six nights and seven days of fun in the Crescent City! This includes housing, most meals, and volunteer and administration fees. St. Charles Avenue Presbyterian Church maintains a strong commitment to supporting our RHINO program in several ways - one of which is by contributing $125/volunteer - and is a large part of why RHINOs can continue to experience so much during their week with us.
Are meals provided? Yes! RHINO provides dinners Tuesday - Thursday and lunches Tuesday - Friday. Two of these dinners are at the church prepared by our (world-renowned) RHINO chefs, and one is held at the home of a church member. The Brent House has two well-priced cafeterias. Your hotel room also has a microwave and refrigerator.
Does RHINO provide transportation? New Orleans' public transportation system is quickly improving, but it does not yet support the schedule our RHINOs keep. Please email our director for RHINO's rental discount codes!
Is there a limit to our group size? We welcome volunteer groups sizes 5 - 30, so grab a friend and come on down!
