lowernine.org is dedicated to training residents of, and volunteers in, the Lower Ninth Ward of New Orleans, LA, in the skills necessary to bring this century-old historic neighborhood back to life after the devastation wrought by hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005. These skills include basic carpentry, roofing, plumbing, electrical wiring, sheetrock finishing, etc., which are needed if houses are going to become habitable once again; but, we include counseling services, social outreach, medical care, youth programs and advocacy, resident rights advocacy and sustainable economic development as being every bit as necessary as physical rebuilding to the success of the revitalization of the Lower Nine.
