New Orleans Area Habitat For Humanity

working hard!
Here are houses in the Musicians' Village as they were being built!

Come and join us at New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity! We are busy helping eradicate substandard poverty housing in the community. We do that through building new homes, rehabbing older homes and doing home repairs. Our ReStore is another vital part of our organization and helping fulfill our mission! We hope you’ll read below for ways to learn more and hopefully to choose to get involved!

Construction: Our expert site supervisors will lead you through your volunteer time, so that you leave with new skills and a new understanding of New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity's misison! To volunteer on one of our many onstruction sites, you do NOT need experience. Our staff on site will teach you everything you need to know. There is always something for everyone on a work site. We build all over New Orleans Tuesday through Saturday 8:00am-4:00pm with a break for lunch.

ReStore: The New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity ReStore promotes good stewardship of resources by keeping materials from the landfill. The NOAHH ReStore sells donated building material (new and used) at a discounted price. The ReStore helps Habitat build homes! The ReStore is open Tuesday-Saturday 10am-6pm. The hours for a volunteer would be from 8:30am-5pm with a break for lunch. If these hours do not work, send us an email and we might be able to find an alternative option for your group.

Email Michelle Carty (, Director of Volunteer Services, or visit our website, for more information!

Mission Statement

To eliminate substandard housing in the New Orleans area by providing low-income families the opportunity to buy affordable, decent, safe and secure homes.


New Orleans' citizens are faced with many issues which affect their quality of life. The question of safe, affordable housing may be the most pressing.Habitat helps to build homes for low- to-moderate income partners in need of secure, quality housing at an affordable price. We help families break out of the cycle of low-quality properties with high rent payments and into the world of reasonable payments toward home ownership.

NOAHH has many opportunities for volunteers to get invovled! We have new construction and home repair projects, as well as volunteer projects in our ReStore, and in the Habitat Urban Gardens (HUGs).

We'd love to have you join us!
