Alternative Spring Break 2012

Who: 12 HEPS members

What: Alternative spring break trip

When: March 11th – March 17th

Where: New Orleans

Why: On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina displaced thousands of people for months
and months, and today—more than six years later—some residents are still unable to
return to their homes. With financial, physical, and psychological restraints, many families
have been unable to finish rehabilitating their homes. Some houses in New Orleans have
remained untouched since the storm. HEPS has formed a relationship with a grassroots
community service organization to help. On this trip, we will spend our time working on
rebuild projects for these families.

Spots for this trip are still available! If you are interested in going to New Orleans, email
