Since 1988, Rebuilding Together New Orleans (RTNO) has been a key program of the Preservation Center of New Orleans. Our success depends on the passion and skills of volunteers and staff from across the United States who work together to improve low income homeowners’ quality of life through home repair. We focus primarily on the homes of the elderly, the disabled and single parents with minor children, for whom extensive home repair is often unaffordable.
Our services are provided at no cost to homeowners, with projects ranging from quality-of-life repairs, such as wheelchair ramps and grab bars, to full home renovations, floor-to-ceiling. With your donation, our work creates a visible difference every day in the lives of our neighbors, while revitalizing our communities in the long-term recovery efforts of post-Katrina New Orleans.
Preservation Resource Center's Operation Comeback program promotes the purchase, renovation and sale of vacant historic properties. Started in 1987, as a focused effort to revitalize the Lower Garden District, Operation Comeback rapidly expanded and now works with dozens of neighborhood associations and community development corporations citywide. By acquiring and renovating blighted and adjudicated properties that most would consider hopeless, Operation Comeback provides homes for first-time and repeat homebuyers, serving as a catalyst for the rebirth of New Orleans' historic neighborhoods. In the effort to put as many properties back into the hands of families as possible, Operation Comeback has developed several ways for many to become involved.
