Partnering with NENA
NENA, or the Neighborhood Empowerment Network Association, is a nonprofit organization that operates in the Lower Ninth Ward that offers assistance to displaced residents. Last week, YRNO staff and volunteers helped gut out a home that hadn’t been touched since Hurricane Katrina 11 years ago. YRNO staff also helped with landscaping at another NENA property.
Everyone found the experience very inspirational and touching, and it demonstrates that there’s still work to be done.
Special thanks to John Paul the Great Academy and the Dunlap Family for their enthusiastic service! Additional thanks to Dave at Capstone New Orleans for his bee hive removal service.
