About

Evolution is the process in which resilience blossoms within a community. In the Greater New Orleans area, hundreds of organizations were created out of the great needs that engaged citizens sought to fulfill in the city and region after Hurricane Katrina. Today, several of these organizations have grown robustly, some beyond their initial mission, and have widely extended their services. This panel features representatives of a few of those organizations that stand out in their commitment to resilient communities and building back stronger.

Objectives

  1. Understand how to leverage community capital and build stronger networks in post-Katrina New Orleans.
  2. Evaluate the services offered by community organizations.
  3. Understand the entrepreneurism created from the needs of a disaster-impacted area.
  4. Export the lessons learned from a variety of entrepreneurs and the opportunity to benefit other communities.
