Presbyterian Community Outreach
A ministry of First Presbyterian Church of Slidell in partnership with PSL Recovery
Katrina took a heavy toll on the north shore of Lake Pontchartrain, damaging 60% of this area’s structures. Slidell is just north and east of New Orleans, closer to the hurricane center but not affected by levee failure. The First Presbyterian Church of Slidell didn’t wait long to put its shelter and recovery plan into motion. It quickly became part of Northshore Disaster Recovery Inc., beginning a ministry it calls Presbyterian Community Outreach. PCO partners with Presbyterians, Methodists, Habitat for Humanity, or any group that wants to assist in the rebuilding effort. With housing capacity for 90 volunteers, PCO now works in areas to its south, in St. Bernard and Orleans Parishes.
