Challenge

Despite the recent successes that New Orleans has experienced, there are still many homeowners who have not been able to return post-Katrina. PNOLA has worked on homes for families that include people who were ripped off by contractors; those who did not receive enough money from their insurance to hire a contractor; and those in a forgotten fragment of the population that have too much money to qualify for free rebuilding assistance, but not enough to hire a contractor.

Solution

Our Housing Recovery Program requires homeowners cover the cost of materials and trade labor while we do the skilled labor required. We supplement the costs of rebuilding by using volunteers to perform the easy work, which saves our homeowners money

Long-Term Impact

This program will allow us to save the average homeowner more than $30,000 and benefit the community by ridding it of the blight of an unfinished home that so many neighborhoods in New Orleans suffer from.
