Ninth Ward

The Ninth Ward made headlines in 2005 when Hurricane Katrina and a levee breach flooded the historic neighborhood. Today, although signs of the devastation are still prevalent, the neighborhood is getting back on its feet and many residents have moved back and are at work restoring their homes. In the Lower Ninth Ward, where most of the homes completely destroyed, Brad Pitt's Pink Project and the Make It Right Foundation are building amazing, eco-friendly houses on the old foundations. Stop by the Common Ground Headquarters and chat with their staff about the exciting revitalization efforts going on in the Ninth Ward.
