ProSight Donates Section of Land to lowernine.org

New Orleans, Louisiana, January 9, 2019 – Today, ProSight Specialty Insurance (ProSight), announced the donation of residential land previously owned by ProSight Specialty Insurance Brokerage (ProSight Brokerage) to lowernine.org, a non-profit organization committed to servicing the lower ninth ward area of New Orleans. 

Dedicated to the long-term recovery of the New Orleans historic Lower Ninth Ward from Hurricane Katrina, lowernine.org has been rebuilding homes, restoring services, reviving hope and reaching out for over a decade. “We are absolutely committed to the long-term future of this neighborhood for as many pre-Katrina residents as wish to return,” said Laura Paul, founder of lowernine.org, in a Rolling Stone article published earlier this year. 

lowernine.org has rebuilt eighty-eight homes and repaired and renovated two hundred. “lowernine.org is making a positive difference in Louisiana with their mission,” said Ric Victores, President of ProSight Brokerage. “It is an honor to donate this property. Their humanitarian efforts are helping people still in need from the storm and I’m certain they will make good use of the land. We look forward to following their progress on this project.” 

“We are grateful to ProSight for their generous donation,” said Beverly Nichols, Board President and Treasurer of lowernine.org. “These kind gestures allow Lowernine.org to maintain its promise to help people get back to their neighborhood and community.” 

ProSight hopes donating this land will provide lowernine.org continued success in aiding the great people of New Orleans.
