Community Information

The strength and pride of New Orleans is centered on its many individual neighborhoods. We are members of our community first – then our beloved city at large. At Providence Community Housing, we understand this unique connection. Providence has been able to impact several neighborhoods in our area by providing affordable homes to seniors and families. For several years now our actions have been centered on one special neighborhood – Faubourg Lafitte. Our efforts have given Faubourg Lafitte the gift of community – delivering opportunities for homeownership, affordable housing and programs that support and strengthen families, individuals, seniors, children and those with special needs. But the main focus has always been, and continues to be, revitalizing the Lafitte corridor by offering affordable housing and giving community-minded people a true option to come home and re-settle their historic neighborhood.
