Volunteer Housing

Common Ground Relief House

Volunteer housing is in a 1,700 square foot house constructed by Common Ground Relief, as part of our “New Home Construction” program. It is next door to our main office in the Lower Ninth Ward, and a few blocks from our state licensed nursery facility. The house is fully equipped with a kitchen, living room, shared bathrooms with hot shower, sleeping quarters, and laundry facilities. The volunteer housing has central air conditioning and heat.

Each volunteer is provided with:

  • Pillow, sheets, pillow cases
  • Bath Towels

Please bring your own:

  • Shower flip flops
  • Personal toiletries
  • Face and hand towels

Common Ground Relief keeps a fully stocked medical kit on hand.  However, we recommend that you bring a personal supply of band-aids, preferred product for minor aches/pains, and anti-itch cream.
