Prior to Hurricane Katrina, local lawyers, judges, and other legal professionals teamed up for NOAHH’s Bench & Bar Build to give back to the community by building homes for hard-working families. That tradition will be renewed this fall.
On October 27, the 2018 Bench & Bar Build will bring the legal community together again, welcoming professionals from firms large and small, sole practitioners, judges, legal services providers, and businesses that collaborate with people in the legal field. Bench & Bar Build is the perfect opportunity for team-building and networking for legal professionals. As we approach the build, NOAHH will host events so participants are able to get to know each other before they step onto the construction site. Following the build, NOAHH will host a reception where participants will celebrate the home’s completion, and toast to their new connections.
