Shirts Across America prepares students for college/university and beyond through its dynamic Leadership Immersion Trips.

How it all Began…

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with Shirts Across America (SAA).

On August 29, 2005, Hurricane Katrina made landfall along the Gulf Coast, devastating communities in Louisiana and Mississippi. In New Orleans, levee failures led to extensive flooding throughout the city, with up to 20 feet of water in some neighborhoods. Many families, in their efforts to rebuild, experienced additional challenges created by bureaucratic inefficiency, lack of resources, contractor fraud, and unequal allocation of aid.

We are committed to engage volunteers like you to help build homes in New Orleans throughout the school year.

To date, SAA has:

  • Sent over 4,000 high school volunteers and adults to help build homes in Louisiana and Mississippi
  • Fully funded 16 homes through donations and volunteer hours
  • Worked on 200+ homes/projects
