New Home Dedication in 7th Ward
NOAHH staff, volunteers, and partners gathered on September 28 to celebrate the completion of Gloria Poolaw’s home in the 7th Ward. Not an hour before the ceremony, Gloria closed on the home, and she came to her dedication ready to move in. Her friend Trenace, whom she met during her time in the program, joined her at the ceremony, and Habitat staff and volunteers presented her with the traditional gifts of bread, flowers, wine, a Bible, tools, and keys. Representatives from the ReStore, construction staff, and office staff all volunteered to be part of the presentation, having worked closely with her during her partnership.
