We definitely have another option now. It is official, Hands On Disaster Response (the direct descendants of the original Hands on USA in Biloxi and our role model), is up and running in Gassville Arkansas. Read more about it here.
It sounds like a great project!
That said, I would still prefer helping in TN as it is much closer, but if it falls through at Union University, we will almost assuredly send a team here.
