Who We Are: Project Homecoming is a faith-based community development organization building resilient neighborhoods in the greater New Orleans area. We are committed to facilitating a culture of care in targeting communities through: safe, durable, affordable and environmentally sensitive construction; community driven partnerships; service and fellowship. Our Community: Project Homecoming has worked across New Orleans rebuilding homes.
