In partnership with The First 72+, we are getting to work on our inaugural (re)build!


Located in Central City New Orleans, the house has been known for decades throughout the neighborhood as "The Keller Mansion". Current estimates put it at over 150 years old. As a Center-Hall Raised Villa it stands three stories high and is 6500 sq'.

 

Together with partners, we will do a complete historic rennovation to create additional space for The First 72+ transitional housing and reentry program. During the renovation process this project will provide paid training opportunities and transitional jobs for people recently released from prison, and residents in the neighborhood.

 

Along the way, with the help of volunteer historians and researchers, we will also be tracing back the story of the house as we restore its historic features.
