Paid position open at Dulac Disaster Recovery Station

December 05, 2007

The Dulac Station of the Disaster Recovery Ministry of the Louisiana Conference has an immediate opening for an “Individual Volunteer” – a position that includes a paid stipend. The applicant may be an individual, or a couple may apply to serve in the position. No children or pets.


Preferred dates for service are now through February 15, 2008.


The person hired will act as Project Assistant for the reconstruction work being done in response to damage from Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, which exacerbated conditions caused by years of systemic poverty. Dulac is a community in the bayou region of southern Louisiana, approximately two hours southwest of New Orleans.


To be considered, an applicant must possess basic construction understanding, a valid driver’s license and up-to-date auto insurance, and a pickup truck that he or she is willing to use for material runs. The individual must also have a positive track record in working with volunteers.
