NOEL 501(c)(3) Update
It’s been an exciting year for NOEL! 
Jefferson Joining Fo rces, our blight remediation program for elderly, low-income home owners, is going strong for the 5th year running. 
We kicked off two new programs in 2017. Our Owner Occupied Rehabilitation Program is fixing quality of life issues in the homes of elderly, low-income home owners at no cost to the participant, while being fully compensated to the licensed builder completing the work. We’ve also kicked off our Re-Entry Job Placement program. This program is providing education, mentoring, and job placement to non-violent, non-sex offender participants in the Orleans and Jefferson Parish re-entry courts. Through a strong collaboration with Louisiana State Penitentiary’s Rehabilitation and Workforce Development Program at Angola, participants are re-entering society with industry-recognized certifications in all the key fields that are short on qualified labor.
