Hurricane Laura – Serve On-Site

Several of our partnering organizations are on-site in Lake Charles, Louisiana serving the thousands of people impacted by Hurricane Laura. Find out how to join one of these teams by reviewing the information below.  (Lake Charles requires a 4-5 hour drive, approximately 300 miles from Austin, TX).  Each organization we list are trusted partners and personal contacts of our ADRN leadership team!  With many Austin churches and individuals making the trip, we'd love to continue connecting teams to travel and serve together. Please let us know when you are sending a group, looking for a group to join and if you have any questions about this process by emailing derick.z@adrntx.org
