Do you love to travel but want to be more than a tourist?

Do you want to "travel with a purpose"?

We invite you to join Paterson Habitat's "Travel with a Purpose" (TWAP) volunteer team and build decent, affordable shelter in a local and world destinations alongside members of the host community. Each trip itinerary is balanced with work, rest, and cultural experiences. No construction experience is necessary. TWAP trips are a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to do something truly meaningful, discover a new culture and new friends, and learn some new things about yourself, too. 


February 2018: new orleans

Since Hurricanes Katrina and Rita made landfall in late 2005 Habitat for Humanity has built, rehabbed and repaired more than 6,000 homes.

The Gulf Coast region is still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. Gulf Coast affiliates continue to build houses in the hurricane-affected areas as part of Habitat’s long-term program―the Hurricanes Katrina and Rita Recovery Effort. 

Paterson Habitat has returned to the Gulf Coast year after year to help with these efforts.  This year we are returning to New Orleans.
