New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity Day Build
Our team participated in a New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity (NOAHH) day build in Central City as part of the rehabilitation effort in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. More than 200,000 homes and businesses were destroyed when levees and floodwalls failed resulting in flooding that affected eighty percent of New Orleans.
Hurricane Katrina caused property damage in excessive of $81 billion, and was the costliest natural disaster in the history of the United States of America. Among recorded Atlantic hurricanes, it was the sixth strongest. Since 2005, NOAHH has built more than 600 homes and assisted more than 3,100 families in need.
