Opportunities for Subcontractors

New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity has been a part of the New Orleans community for 40 years. In that time, the affiliate has built over 600 homes and, between 2006 and 2012, contributed more than $300 million in economic impact. NOAHH was one of the first organizations to begin rebuilding after the storms and floods of 2005, and our programs have expanded since then to meet the continuing needs of the area. The families served by our affiliate are the keepers of tradition and culture that make our city unique, and the hardworking people that contribute so much to our communities. To work for NOAHH is to work for the preservation and improvement of the city of New Orleans.

NOAHH currently employs about 71 staff, including AmeriCorps members, part-time, and full-time employees as construction staff, ReStore staff, and office staff. We are committed to New Orleans and the fight against poverty housing, and a highlight of the experience is the opportunity to work alongside our partner families and see the tangible results of our efforts to change lives and communities.
