About

Volunteering Description: lowernine.org is looking for additional skilled volunteer workers to assist in the work of rebuilding the houses of the people of the Ninth Ward. We are in need of volunteers with the skills used in all phases of rebuilding homes. To date, lowernine.org has fully rebuilt eighty-two homes, and has completed smaller repair and renovation projects on hundreds more, bringing home more Lower Ninth Ward families than any other single organization. We provide room and board for those qualified skilled workers who fill an important need in this community.


About us: lowernine.org is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization working in toward the long-term recovery of New Orleans' historic Lower Ninth Ward from Hurricane Katrina and the levee breaches of 2005. Our main goal is to support residents in rebuilding their storm damaged properties, but we also assist the community in other ways, helping with blight mapping, community gardens, and any other neighborhood recovery initiatives.
