News from Youth Rebuilding New Orleans

Before and After

Things are finally starting to take shape on St. Ann. As many of our supporters know, YRNO has spent the better part of a year working to beautify a series of homes all clustered together in Bayou St. John. The first of several homes to be sold to teachers is nearing completion and its been truly remarkable to see the transformation of each home. 

Many of our volunteers don't have the opportunity to see a project from start to finish but as a collective group they can have a profound impact on the communities in which we serve. Stay in touch and track our project by visiting our Facebook, Twitter, and Snapchat accounts. Thank you to all those individuals that have helped us make New Orleans better than before.
