The Wattlington Home

wattlingtonsSandra wattlington purchased her Jericho Road home in May 2008. Originally from Pennsylvania, Sandra moved to New Orleans over 20 years ago and now sees herself as a true New Orleanian.

After working hard at the Leidenheimer Bakery for many years and living in the Calliope housing projects, Sandra was tired of renting and realized she wanted something to show for her all of her labor. Right be-fore Hurricane Katrina, she started looking to buy a house, but her search for the perfect home was stopped by the storm. Upon returning to New Or-leans, Sandra kept her search up, and eventually found Jericho Road. When she first toured the home on Sixth Street she fell in love, the quality of the cabinets alone made her want to move in immediately!

Since moving into her home, Sandra has been a great force in the neighborhood: fighting blight on her block, and working with city agencies to improve the quality of life for all in her neighborhood. For Sandra, her Jericho Road home is where she belongs, and she intends to stay there as long as she can.
