Bench and Bar Build
Bench and Bar Build is a collaboration of local legal professionals (judges, partners, associates, paralegals, professional staff, government/non-profit employees) coordinated by New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity. Volunteers work side by side with a hard-working New Orleans Habitat Partner Family, who will purchase the home upon completion.
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 was renewed in 2018 and 2019.
