Giving Back: New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity

Nonprofit Profile
Scott Moersen and his daughter celebrate their new home


New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that was incorporated in 1983 as an independent affiliate of Habitat for Humanity International. In our 35 years of working in New Orleans and the surrounding area, NOAHH has built and rehabbed over 600 homes, gutted over 2,400 homes and led more than 180,000 volunteers in neighborhoods severely impacted by natural disasters and poverty.


In May, NOAHH will host Women Build, an all-woman build where women will work together to fund and build two homes for hardworking New Orleans women. The build will begin on May 9 and conclude on June 2. It’s more than a chance to build a home. It’s a chance to build lasting friendships, connect with other local women, learn new skills and create a better future for others.

We’re asking you to join us. Be a team leader. If leading a team is not for you, you can still be involved as a team member, a donor or by helping us with other details of the event like lunches, special surprises and more.

The mission of New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity is to build affordable homes in partnership with sponsors, volunteers, communities and homeowner families. Through this process families are empowered to transform their own lives and to eliminate poverty housing in the New Orleans area while serving as a catalyst to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
