NOLAH is a 501(c)3 charity formed in 2012 by five San Diego friends, all of whom had lived in the New Orleans or Baton Rouge areas of Louisiana. Through personal experience, each had experienced the challenge of recovery after disaster, either personally or in assisting friends and family to recover. Initially, their work involved assisting homeowners who were struggling with the same issues – trying to rebuild their homes and their lives.
In San Diego, they discovered another form of “disaster.” Disabled veterans, struggling to remain in their homes and in need of modifications to allow them to continue to live there safely. As a military town, San Diego has thousands of veterans in this situation.
