Lower 9th Ward Center for Sustainable Engagement & Development

General Info

Out of tragedy and the devastation following Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, a powerful idea was born: to create a new community-based organization that would help the Lower Ninth Ward recover and rebuild sustainably. To engage with returning residents. To attract vital resources while partnering with like-minded people and groups. And to help revitalize the Lower 9 while respecting its culture and traditions – working in solidarity with residents to meet their needs and concerns.
