YWCA groundbreaking

On October 4, the YWCA New Orleans broke ground on a new, $10 million building. The YWCA has been without a home since Hurricane Katrina devastated the organization’s buildings in Mid-City 17 years ago. The new headquarters will be located at the corner of the Norman C. Francis Parkway and D’Hemecourt Street, and construction is expected to take 12 to 14 months.

Steeg Law was privileged to represent the YWCA in obtaining a resubdivision of the property, negotiating various servitudes and neighbor agreements, and closing the $1 million loan from the Office of Community Development.

Partner Margaret V. Glass was excited to attend the groundbreaking. “We were very fortunate to work on this incredible project that will serve the community by providing critical services to women, girls and families. It was an honor to work with the YWCA’s President, Loyce Pierce Wright, and such an inspiring group of women on this project.”

A rich diversity of community services benefitting women, children, and the elderly in the Greater New Orleans will be represented at the new YWCA New Orleans facility, including:

  • Domestic Violence Counseling
  • Battered Women’s Programs
  • Rape Crisis
  • Education Programs
  • Financial Empowerment
  • Role Model Programs
  • Senior Services
  • Daycare Services
  • Parenting Classes
  • Youth Enrichment
