NEW ORLEANS AREA HABITAT FOR HUMANITY OPEN HOUSE

DATE
Sat, Aug 15, 2015
TIME
10:00am - 2:00pm

PAYING TOO MUCH FOR RENT?

COME TO NEW ORLEANS AREA HABITAT FOR HUMANITY’S FREE OPEN HOUSE AUGUST 15, 2015 FROM 10AM – 2PM and see how your dream of homeownership can come true!

Tour a New Orleans Area Habitat for Humanity home and chat with Habitat staff about our easy four-step process to homeownership.

Our First Time Homebuyers program offers low income residents an opportunity to own a home for about the same monthly payment as renting. Participants can choose a Habitat for Humanity owned lot in the 7th, 8th, Upper 9th wards, New Orleans East or Central City on which we will build a brand-new home. Habitat will then sell them the house with no financial down payment and a 0% interest loan.

Applicants need only make a minimum of $1600 a month (before taxes) and have less than $2000 in past due debt (collections debt) to qualify.

CASA New Orleans Orientation

DATE
Mon, Aug 17, 2015
TIME
12:00pm - 1:00pm

CASA New Orleans (Court Appointed Special Advocates) is an agency that advocates on behalf of children (birth to 18+) who have been judged victims of abuse and/or neglect. A CASA volunteer offers a child trust and advocacy during complex legal proceedings. Interacting and explaining to the child what is going on, the CASA may be the only stable and continuous presence in the child’s life.

We are especially in need of more male and African American volunteers but we welcome all volunteers!

Interested in learning more? Come out to one of our orientations!

All orientations are located at 1340 Poydras St. NOLA 70112 in our conference room on the 21st floor.

The duties carried out by a CASA are extremely important. No special education or skills are required. We provide thorough training and continual support.

For more information, please e-mail Betsy at blopez@casaneworleans.org or give her a call at 504-522-1962.
