The partnership between New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity and the Greater New Orleans Hotel & Lodging Association began in December 2007 and continues to this day. Our goal is to foster the Habitat mission by providing hotel employee volunteers to build homes as well as contributing to ongoing fundraising efforts.
Since Hurricane Katrina devastated the city in 2005, over 500 homes have been built by New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity supported by local and visiting volunteers. Of those 500 homes, 45 proud hotel employees around the city are now living in Habitat-constructed homes. Over 20,000 hours of volunteer service have been logged to date, and over $400,000 has been raised since the partnership was established.
