In 2011, Bridge Foundation responded to Hurricane Isaac. The two 250 kilowatt (kw) generators were consigned to Governor Jindal's office and were used to operate wells that supply Slidell parish with drinking water. One generator powered the St. Joe's neighborhood, and the second supplied the Slidell VA Outpatient Clinic and the surrounding neighborhood with safe, potable water. The Slidell VA Clinic provides primary care services for veterans in the St. Tammany Parish and surrounding areas. Services include behavioral health, laboratory and pharmacy services.

In addition to these generators, Bridge Foundation also facilitated the delivery of bottled water to high priority neighborhoods of Slidell, St. John the Baptist Parish, La Place, Lafourche Parish and East Baton Rouge Parish, LA. In East Baton Rouge Parish, approximately 100,000 people were affected by flooding and power outages. St. John's and LaPlace had been severely affected by flooding which has rendered water treatment and drinking water facilities inoperable.

In 2008, Bridge Foundation donated and delivered two high-powered generators and truckloads of bottled water to Baton Rouge and Abbeville, Louisiana after the two cities were hit hard by Hurricane Gustav and declared top priority sites by Governor Jindal's office.

In the weeks after Hurricane Katrina, Bridge Foundation supplied project management services in support of a program sponsored by Diageo North America to provide housing, employment, and educational counseling to those displaced by Hurricanes Katrina and Rita. The program offered these during a four month period from September 2005 through January 2006 in several locations including Mobile Alabama, New Orleans, Baton Rouge and Houston Texas.
