What we aim to solve

NOAHH is working to eliminate poverty housing in New Orleans. We are doing this through a combination of programs: our first time home buyer program and our affordable rentals that cost no more than 30% of income. We rent to those making no more than 80% of average median income.

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

First Time Home Buyer Program

New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity's programs include single-family homebuilding projects. Volunteers contribute the vast majority of the construction labor, keeping costs as low as possible. Qualified "partner families" contribute 350 hours of "sweat equity" or their own labor to the construction of Habitat homes. House sponsors donate the full cost of buildng the homes, and the houses are then sold to the families at cost, with no profit and no interest 15-30 year mortgages. Mortgage payments are used for the construction of future Habitat homes.
