This week a group of YouthBuild Philadelphia students and staff are in Mississippi for spring break! We have this opportunity to travel for spring break to do service and help people who lost their homes.
We are at a place called Camp Victor. They host volunteers from all over the country who come to build and repair houses that were damaged by Hurricane Katrina. Camp Victor found out they are losing their home in Ocean Springs because the city sold their building. So, we are helping them have a new home by making repairs to their new building. Volunteers will be able to keep coming to Mississippi because of our help. We learned that there are still over 1800 homes that need repairs.
