Since our founding in 2006, volunteers have been an important part of the L9WHA Team. Over the last decade, we have been honored to host thousands of volunteers from all over the country and the world. In the early years following Hurricane Katrina, volunteers helped us clear storm debris and gut houses. More recently, they have provided important case and data management support as well as administrative, communications and outreach assistance for our clients who are working so hard to return home


Do you have a passion for helping others?  Love the Lower 9th Ward?

Volunteers are needed year-round.  We need assistance with:

  • Special events & programs

We would love to work with you and use your talents to preserve and create homeownership in the L9.
