New Orleans, Louisiana

Established in 1981, HCNA’s primary goal has been to improve the living conditions and serve the needs of our residents, while preserving the cultural and architectural heritage of our area.

Ms. Mable H. Howard, 92

Meet our neighbors:
Ms. Mable was born in the Lower Nine. She still loves to garden, and has worked her entire life doing a variety of different things, including selling African style dolls she makes for her French Market stall.
“I have the best view in the city. Time is passing by, I don’t want to be obligated to anyone. If you’re obligated to someone, then you aren’t your own boss.”
