New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity is committed to building simple, decent, and affordable houses.
The size of a Habitat house is determined by the number of family members. Habitat provides a standard floor plan for each size house, which might be adapted to meet special needs of the lot or particular considerations of the family. An average floor plan for a three bedroom Habitat home is 1,100 square feet.
There are some customizable choices for your home. Every homeowner can choose at no cost:
- Siding and exterior trim colors
- Countertop colors for kitchen
- Flooring (wood, ceramic tile, and vinyl)
Where We Build
Currently, NOAHH is focusing on the Upper and Lower Ninth Ward and New Orleans East. We also have builds in the Seventh and Eighth Ward.
We are pledged to the letter and spirit of U.S. policy for the achievement of equal housing opportunity throughout the nation. We encourage and support an affirmative advertising and marketing program in which there are no barriers to obtaining housing because of race, color, religion, sex, handicap, familial status, national origin, age, marital status, sexual orientation, or sources of income.
