Project HOMEwork

YRNO provides housing opportunities for metro educators. Foreclosed and rehabbed homes are being made available for purchase to teachers in the metro area by the nonprofit group, Youth Rebuilding New Orleans. The primary goal is to assist teachers, one of our most undervalued resources, in becoming homeowners. Sales of homes at below market prices are made possible by generous donations and the tireless work of hundreds of youth volunteers.

Who is eligible?

To be eligible Purchasers must:
1. Be a teacher or support staff in a New Orleans area school.
2. Become an owner-occupant of the home.
3. Complete a minimum of three years teaching service in the metro area.

Teachers should seriously consider their housing needs, desired location, and credit history. YRNO committees will guide teachers through the process and assist with securing financing and acquiring a realtor to work with them.
