WHO IS THE CAJUN RELIEF FOUNDATION?

  • Cajun Relief founder, Rob Gaudet, organized the dispatch teams for the Texas Navy and the Cajun Navy by using social media technology.

  • Rob’s insights have been sought through appearances on Fox Business, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Glenn Beck’s the Blaze and many other interviews during Louisiana’s flooding and to provide insights for relief during Hurricane Harvey.

  • Through his experiences, Rob developed a vision for a Cajun Navy model of organic citizen-led relief that can work anywhere at anytime.

  • Cajun Relief Foundation was honored to be selected for the New Orleans Collision Conference to present their innovative approaches to citizen-led relief.
