Eight years ago, the Annie E. Casey Foundation joined a collaborative effort to help rebuild and revitalize a low-income New Orleans neighborhood devastated by Hurricane Katrina. Resident leaders and philanthropic partners both played crucial roles in ensuring the redevelopment project in the historic neighborhood of Central City met the needs of the community.
Join the Center for the Study of Social Policy (CSSP) for a webinar on Monday, January 27 at 2:00 p.m. (ET) to explore the multifaceted partnerships that guided the post-Katrina transformation of Central City's C.J. Peete public housing complex into the mixed-income Harmony Oaks community. The webinar will feature the key players involved - resident, developer and funder - as they talk about their rebuilding experience and lessons that could help inform future redevelopment efforts.
