Disaster Relief Projects - 2024
Hurricane Idalia and Ian Disaster Relief
Domestic Project Overview
For over two decades, CCI has fostered partnerships with local communities, recruiting and guiding volunteer teams to contribute to environmental, disaster relief, and human service projects.
CCI has established itself as a trusted collaborator working with over 30,000 student volunteers with our first project starting in 2005 to provide Hurricane Katrina relief. By managing all-inclusive logistics encompassing lodging, food, safety gear, tools, insurance, and expert volunteer coordinators, CCI enables teams to complete projects for the community.
CCI Domestic projects focus on disaster relief and community recovery. Most projects are on the US Gulf Coast from Texas to Florida.
