Volunteering

     The community of Dulac has been rocked and ripped apart by hurricanes in recent years.  The people of Dulac are continually working towards restoring the community, and confronting issues these storms uncovered.

     As the Dulac Community Center walks hand-in-hand with its community through social, recreational, and emergency support, your team can come alongside in the healing process by lending a helping hand. Love the community by repairing damage to area homes, hosting a VBS for local children, or working to provide resources in the thrift store and library. Get to know residents and experience the town’s cultural vibrancy as you explore its Native American heritage, tour the bayou, and see the ways the Lord is restoring peace to this storm-ridden land.  

I came that they may have life, and have it abundantly. —John 10:10

First aid kit, at least one cellphone per group, mosquito repellent (30 percent DEET), and sun block (March through November)

Swamp and land tours can be arranged that provide a glimpse of the Houma Native American and Cajun cultures. Several country roads into the swamp and the bayou areas allow you to view and appreciate the serenity of the area. The Bayou Terrebonne Waterlife Museum is near, and groups have the option of driving to see area plantations.
