Common Ground Relief is a 501(c)(3), not for profit organization, headquartered in the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans. We run a diverse range of projects throughout Southern Louisiana, from wetlands restoration involving bottomland hardwood tree and marsh grass plantings to the installation of rainwater catchment systems for residential use to the rehab of architecturally significant houses throughout New Orleans and new energy efficient home construction. We educate local school children about culturally significant local food options and environmental science through our Garden of Eatin' and Meg Perry Healthy Soil projects. We continue to support free legal services for local residents.
In collaboration with locally owned Robert Wolfe Construction, we create employment opportunities for local residents as we work to rehab older houses, construct new homes for returning residents and elevate existing structures throughout Jefferson, Orleans and St. Bernard parishes.
