About our Partnership

lowernine.org and CEDR are working together in partnership with the Lower Ninth Ward Economic Development District to engage one hundred volunteers in repairing fifteen Hurricane Ida-damaged homes for elderly residents of the Lower Ninth Ward. We are also working with staff and interns in the development of a homeowner education series that supports successful home ownership, maintenance, financial management, and disaster resilience.

Learn More About This Organization

lowernine.org is a long-term disaster recovery organization founded after Hurricane Katrina and operating exclusively in New Orleans’ Lower Ninth Ward. The organization offers home repair, build, and rebuild services to legacy (pre-Katrina) residents, and since the outbreak of COVID-19, operates a weekly food pantry, which serves all Orleans Parish residents.
