Posted on 04. May, 2015 by

The client we profiled in an earlier blog post shared her gut-wrenching story of abuse and eviction in this week’s Gambit because she wants to ensure that other women don’t have to go through what she did.

Save the Date: Tuesday May 5

Posted on 16. Apr, 2015 by

Where you live is important. Your neighborhood determines where your children go to school, how likely you are to be exposed to violent crime, and how easy it is for you to access basic resources like grocery stores, hospitals, and libraries.

When you give to the GNO Fair Housing Action Center, you’re helping to make sure that no one in Louisiana is locked out of safe homes and neighborhoods because of their race, disability, or the size of their family. And on Tuesday, May 5, every dollar you donate will be stretched even farther, thanks to generous funding from the Greater New Orleans Foundation.

Give Opportunity.  Give Hope. Read More…
