New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity:  Founded in 1983, NOAHH is the largest and most active homebuilder in the city post-Katrina.  By the end of 2007, NOAHH expects to be the largest Habitat operation in the United States.  Through volunteer labor and tax-deductible donations of money and materials, NOAHH builds simple, decent houses in partnership with low-income families. Habitat houses are sold at no profit and financed with affordable, no-interest loans.  The non-profit organization is managed by a local volunteer board comprised of eminent individuals from different backgrounds.  NOAHH employs a staff of 70 members and engages numerous long-term volunteers. 

NOAHH’s Mission Statement guides the organization’s work:  To build houses in partnership with sponsors, volunteers, communities, and homeowner families, whereby families are empowered to transform their own lives and to eliminate poverty housing in the New Orleans area while serving as a catalyst to make decent shelter a matter of conscience and action.
