The New Orleans Education League needs your help in continuing our mission in providing valuable assistance to local communities.  The various projects below are how NOEL is currently working to Jefferson Parish.  It's through the generosity of supporters, like you, that NOEL is able to make a positive impact on the lives of our friends, family, and neighbors in southeast Louisiana.

Jefferson Joining Forces

The Jefferson Joining Forces program fixes code violations for elderly, and/or disabled, low income homeowners in Jefferson Parish.  These repairs are at no cost to the home owner.  Donations to the Jefferson Joining Forces project will allow us to do the following:

  • Assist additional home owners
  • Make repairs to items not allowed by the grant guidelines

Disaster Relief

Click HERE to donate!

Thanks to a generous grant award from the Home Building Industry Disaster Relief Fund, we will be able to assist the recovery by making donations of building products such as drywall, insulation, and lumber to offset the costs of repairing flood damaged homes.  NOEL is requesting donations from HBA members and the general public to help compliment these funds and help as many home owners as possible.

Your donations to this program will go to benefit those most affected by recent disasters within the Central Louisiana area.

 

Trades Training

Click HERE to donate!

NOEL is exploring funding to expose elementary and high school students to various careers in the  construction trades.  As the current generation of contractors and skilled tradesmen retire, a new generation is needed to keep building a better America.  Donations made to this program will go towards projects that bring expert tradesmen into classrooms around the greater New Orleans area to speak about their field.  Informational brochures covering each trade will be produced.  These brochures will include information such as:

  • Continuing education requirements
  • Expected salary over the life of the career
  • How to prepare to enter the field
  • What to expect on a day to day basis
