Coordinate recovery services designed to alleviate suffering and stress for the people of Forrest, Lamar, and Perry counties who have unmet needs due to the occurrence of a disaster.
R3SM has coordinated the arrival of over 2,900 volunteers from throughout the United States and Canada who have given more than 99,000 hours of service. Their work has provided just shy of $2 million in labor costs savings. These cost savings allow donated dollars to be stretched farther so that homeowners receive maximum benefit.
The Community Volunteer House is open to all incoming volunteer groups. We are currently able to comfortably house over 50 volunteers in dorm-style bedrooms. We have male and female bathrooms, each which contain privately stalled showers and toilets.
