MQVN CDC, 501 (c) 3 nonprofit in New Orleans East, was founded shortly after Hurricane Katrina devastated the area. In December 2005, MQVN CDC, along with community leaders, launched one of the first neighborhood planning processes in the City of New Orleans involving extensive survey collection, targeted focus groups, one-on-ones, community wide meetings and a major design charrette to develop a vision and concepts for community redevelopment. The findings and priorities identified by community members gave MQVN CDC a series of recommendation to formulate its mission, key strategies and program priorities. MQVN CDC is dedicated to preserving and promoting our unique diversity and improving the quality of life of residents in the Greater New Orleans area, beginning in New Orleans East. Together with community partners, our work encompasses health care, environmental and agricultural concerns, education, housing, social services, economic development and culture and the arts.
