New Orleans Rebuilding

We are able to offer technical assistance and aid to community members in navigating a range of decentralized resources, from construction materials and donation opportunities to counseling on Road Home related issues.

We have the capacity to act as case managers and we make it a priority to direct homeowners to proper organizations if we cannot provide the requested service directly.
