New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity
Non-Profits Giving Back
New Orleans Habitat’s mission is to build communities where families can thrive, in homes they can afford.
New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) is a 501(c)3 organization that makes homeownership possible for families who are unable to qualify for traditional home loans but have a stable job, good or no credit, and a willingness to contribute 250 hours of sweat equity volunteer hours. Since its founding, NOAHH has built over 630 homes for the working families of New Orleans. While continuing to build and repair homes, NOAHH expanded its services in the wake of Hurricane Ida. As a leader in disaster recovery and relief, NOAHH quickly responded to bring support to the hardest hit areas after the storm, educating homeowners about insurance processes, and assessing damages throughout the affected region—all while repairing their own offices, which suffered flooding and wind damage. In 2022, New Orleans Habitat plans to continue our building and relief efforts while expanding our services to the Westbank.
NOAHH is responsible for raising all the funds it needs to improve New Orleans communities and residents. While affiliated with Habitat for Humanity International, NOAHH’s operating budget is raised—and spent—locally. The affiliate now offers many ways to make your tax-deductible donations, including Venmo (@habitatnola), donating stocks and bonds, cryptocurrency, car donations through Cars for Homes, and donating furniture and appliances to the ReStores.
The ReStores sell donated materials to the local community in order to raise funds for New Orleans Habitat’s programs. Both locations (2900 Elysian Fields in New Orleans and 2425 Williams Blvd. in Kenner) are open Monday to Saturday and have great deals on gently used appliances, furniture, and construction materials as well as some new furniture.
You can also give back by volunteering! NOAHH offers monthly home building volunteer days, regularly accepts volunteers at our ReStores, and will work with you on customized build experiences for corporate sponsors. Learn more at habitat-nola.org.
