Bringing New Orleans Families Home
The Freddie Mac Foundation and its partners recently welcomed New Orleans families back to their neighborhood, rebuilt after Hurricane Katrina – and to their new homes in the Lafitte affordable housing community. The HUD-funded program is run by Enterprise Community Partners, a Foundation grantee.
The Foundation is teaming up with the nonprofit to provide resident services to these families returning home, and to residents of the low-income Treme neighborhood.
More than 200 families will receive ongoing services that include job training and placement; adult education; financial literacy; help securing and maintaining medical attention; and help to make sure they have adequate food in their households.
The Freddie Mac Foundation works to make home a place where children and families thrive. We invest in the area of stable homes, stable families; foster care and adoption; and academic achievement and career success. The Foundation is sustained by its own charitable endowment.
