Brought Together With

One Common Interest

The Louisiana Flood of 2016 brought together total strangers, all with one common interest of helping those in need. We are a group of volunteers who work tirelessly without pay to provide immediate rescue and relief during natural disasters.

Rescue and relief are our way of sharing the South Louisiana cultural tradition of neighbors helping neighbors with people in need across the United States. By integrating civilian volunteers into the Incident Command Structure we can act as a force multiplier for agencies responding to disaster.

Hear from the Community

Great group of people who really came through when we needed help after Hurricane Ida hit. They went above and beyond! Big thank you to every one of them!

Some of the hardest days in recent memory here in south Louisiana have been this summer. Hurricane Ida caused widespread destruction and utility outages. As always, right over the horizon: Cajun Navy Relief comes with aid. From hot meals to water to clean up essentials… CNR isn’t just there for a photo op. They’re our neighbors and they’re helping. Thank you Cajun Navy Relief!

CNR saved our butts in Houston during Harvey. There would have been so many casualties had they not come. Will be forever grateful!

💙⚓❤️ #neighborshelpingneighbors #cnrcommunityoutreach #CajunNavyRelief #CajunNavy #cnr #beryl #comehellorhighwater8 days ago, Hurricane Beryl ripped through Houston in a matter of about 7 hours, leaving behind over 2 million Houstonians without power, some still don't have it back on yet. I was tagged in a post by Russell White who gathered his friends and family to do a free cookout for linemen, first responders, and anyone who just needed a break. They set up cooling stations, had burgers and hot dogs on the grill, and everyone had a smile on their face, eager to serve our community, this past weekend.Thanks to everyone's donations, Russell and crew were able to serve over 1,000 people, including roughly 500 linemen 🥹Also sending a huge shout out to the local businesses/organizations that donated their time and money: 333 Tattoo Studio HTX Fuhgedaboudit Bagel Co. Thistle Draftshop Cajun Navy Relief #NeighborsHelpingNeighbors This is what community is about. Thank you to Russell, his wife Jessica, the other families that pitched in, and everyone who donated. Every penny went towards feeding our incredible linemen, first responders, and our community 💙 ... See MoreSee Less

This was an amazing story that came to life. From one person wanting to help, to a family wanting to help, to four families wanting to help, to an entire group that came together to feed over 1,000 people. This is truly the spirit of #neighborshelpingneighbors!!!There were people from every demographic, it was easy and fun. Everyone was working and jamming out, meeting the community and just enjoying each other’s company. This was truly an awe inspiring event. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of it.#CajunNavyRelief #CajunNavy #neighborshelpingneighbors #beryl #CNRCommunityOutreachThe Great Hurricane Beryl Cookout of 2024:Hurricane Beryl disrupted our lives, and the lives of those around us in a significant way. While my family and my home were spared from any significant damage, many around could not say the same thing. The neighborhood of Northampton is very well known for its tall mature trees shading the home and large lots. It’s been an icon in this area for as long as I can recall. Just last June (2023), we had a large storm come through and dozens of homes were seriously damaged due to fallen trees. Quite a few of the home repairs were completed only a couple of months ago; and now they are feeling the wrath of Beryl. These people are experiencing it all over again. I cannot imagine the physical and emotional toll they must be feeling. When an event such as this happens, when my neighbors are in need, I can’t sit down and watch. It’s just not possible.If I have the ability to help, I have a responsibility to help. It weighed on me all week to help as much as I could. The biggest impact I thought I could make was to assist in cutting up the downed trees. However, I must embarrassingly admit, I don’t own a chainsaw. Well, you guessed it, they’re all sold out. It wasn’t until Friday when I was able to find some in stock. However, when I went to check out at the register, I couldn’t use my standard “Tap-To-Pay”. Have you ever had the feeling, “Maybe this isn’t how this is supposed to go.”? I instantly knew this wasn’t the route to take, placed the items in my cart back where they belonged, and headed home. On my way home I remembered my daughter wanted donuts for breakfast. Shortly after, I passed a couple of linemen crews and the thought hit me. “I need to feed them.”. I texted my wife immediately that I couldn’t get the chainsaw, and I now wanted to feed them. I am an impatient person, and when I set my mind to something, it is going to happen NOW. Of course, my MUCH smarter wife talked me into doing it the proper way and helped me plan the event properly. Friday night we went to Sam’s and started picking up the required items. We planned to buy enough for 150 people. Once we had a cart full of items, we quickly realized the cost of what we were doing. Feeding 150 people isn’t cheap, and we don’t really have the money for it. We sat in the aisle for about 10 minutes contemplating what we should do. Should we put everything back, pay our bills, and hope it all gets better, or should we buy it and hope we get some help. I mentioned to my parents and sisters in a group text, “I don’t think this can happen, it’s more than we thought.”. I also put the weight of the world on my 8-year-old daughter. I explained what we were doing and asked, “Should we help other people who need it more, or should we use our money to pay for our own bills?”. Before she could respond, I realized I had just answered my own question. They need it more. I instantly texted my family back, (Pardon my French) “Fuck it. It’s for a good cause.”What transpired over the next couple of days was far beyond what I could have ever imagined.This was 100% teamwork and community assistance. As soon as Ashely from Police Happenings contacted me and made her Facebook post Saturday night, it exploded. We received donations, offers to help serve, and people donating equipment. There were so many volunteers and donations that made this possible. Thank you to everyone who showed up, donated funds, or brought us food & supplies.I would like to thank the following people and businesses in particular for their outstanding efforts:Curtis Barker with 333 Tattoo Studio HTXFuhgedaboudit Bagel Co.Charli HerreraChris Edman & Miree Dornier EdmanMary Thorn with Thistle DraftshopJeff DoranShane SeayNicole Capriles NelmsDaniel Fountaine and Jeni Lynn with Cajun Navy ReliefLast, but not least, my amazing wife Jessica and the greatest group of friends anyone could imagine, “The Left Behinds”.....I originally wanted to feed 150....
