NEW ORLEANS AREA HABITAT FOR HUMANITY




ABOUT NEW ORLEANS AREA HABITAT FOR HUMANITY

New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was incorporated in 1983 as an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. In our 34 years of working in the New Orleans area, we have built over 550 homes, completed 180 repair projects, gutted over 2,400 homes and led more than 160,000 volunteers in neighborhoods severely impacted by natural disasters and poverty.
 

FUNDRAISING/EVENTS

In May, New Orleans Habitat will host Women Build, a women-only accelerated build where over 450 women will come together to plan, fund and build a home for a hard-working local mother and her family. This home will mean an affordable mortgage instead of rising rent, a yard where her children can play without fear, and achieving the dream of home ownership that she has worked hard for for many years. The build will begin on May 11 and conclude on June 11. If you’d like to be part of this extraordinary event as a participant or sponsor, please contact marguerite@habitat-nola.org.

In summer of 2017, New Orleans Habitat will present the second installment of its Songs from the Heart concert series in partnership with Nonesuch and Warner Bros. Records. This series offers a distinctive opportunity to enjoy music by world class artists in intimate settings. Tickets include cocktails, food, music at a spectacular private residence, and the knowledge that you’re helping New Orleans Habitat build homes for and with those who need them. Previous Songs from the Heart concerts featured the musical talent of Randy Newman and Emmylou Harris and the culinary creativity of Chefs Susan Spicer and Nathanial Zimet.
