Where We Work

Make It Right began as an effort to rebuild safe, sustainable homes in New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward after Hurricane Katrina. Our work in New Orleans has led to innovations in affordable homebuilding – proof that high-quality, healthy homes can and should be available for everyone.

Today Make It Right is sharing our knowledge of affordable green homebuilding with communities around the country and around the world. While continuing to fulfill our commitment to New Orleans, we have helped build an apartment building for disabled veterans in Newark, NJ, broke ground on an ambitious community development in a blighted Kansas City, MO neighborhood and partnered with Native American tribes to build homes on the Fort Peck Reservation.

We continue to find innovative ways to help communities in need and educate others to change the way buildings are designed and built.
