Team Transform worked with Saint Bernard Project which helps families that were left homeless after Hurricane Katrina. Nine years later, there are still hundreds of families not sleeping in their own beds at night. The house my groups worked on is a “double-shotgun”, which is a house being transformed into a three bedroom, two bath for a family who lived their prior to the hurricane. After putting up insulation for a couple of hours, the owner sat down to chat with us.  He told us that his family evacuated during the hurricane, but his home was destroyed.  It’s an amazing feeling knowing that this man and his wife are one step closer to living in their home again because of the work my team did today. I can’t wait to see meet the other lives we will change on this trip.
