Architecture For Humanity's Gulf Coast projects Were featured in the 2008 Iconoclast series. The Guardians Institute designed by the Rockwell Group, and the Biloxi Model Home Program show that bringing back a sense of community after a disaster takes more than just building.

Make a donation to the Guardians Institute and help us bring community back to New Orleans.

We'd like to thank all of the architects and designers, sponsors, volunteers, families, and community partners who made these projects possible. See our sponsors.

With funds available we will continue to support the Bangkok based team and will update you on further developments.
