Fighting Poverty with Passion

A Decade of Difference—Project Homecoming

Hey All! I’m so glad you’re back to hear about my third month at PH. Per usual, this powerhouse of a nonprofit has been busy building—not just homes, but a stronger infrastructure for new systems at the office. Our volunteer base is growing, as is national support for the organization. I’ve also worked closely with my supervisor and the rest of the team to start an initiative called Why Housing Matters, a multidisciplinary approach to understanding the significance of proper and adequate housing (so stay tuned for the first of many segments in our newsletter).

Most importantly, the majority of my time has been spent preparing for our 2nd Annual Homecoming Affair: A Decade of Difference gala. The gala will be held on January 24, 2015 from 7-10 pm at the First NBC Bank on Barrone St. Last year, the gala exceeded expectations with over 220 attendees, 22 Silent Auction baskets, and a special performance by Dr. John.  The evening was a great success.

This year, the gala will serve to recognize the New Orleans community for their resilience and dedication to restoring this remarkable city for the last ten years. New Orleans is in such a transitional period, and it is essential for all New Orleanians,  locals and transplants alike, to have a hand in the beautiful changes that are occurring in the city in whatever capacity they can.

If you or anyone you know would like to attend the gala or would so kindly like to become a sponsor to help us rebuild this remarkable city, please contact me at Krishna@projecthomecoming.net
