Some volunteer opportunities require specialized training and/or donated materials. This is just an example of many projects NENA is seeking to complete. Every time it rains the bottom of this door gets soaked and water penetrates the living area. The homeowner could use an awning to protect the door from weather effects. If you are able to assist with time or materials in these types of projects please contact us. (Photo taken July 2016)
This group of devoted volunteers came from John Paul the Great Academy in Lafayette, Louisiana. Their work to gut this house was coordinated by NENA’s friends at Youth Rebuilding New Orleans (YRNO). The house will become home to another Lower 9th Ward resident by Summer of 2017. To support the work of these and other volunteers with food, funding, t-shirts, gloves, tools, paint, and other supplies, please consider donating by clicking the Donate button. Any amount is greatly appreciated.
