Domain’s Louisiana team recently held our annual Community Day this May, a dedicated day for all regional employees to work closely with a local nonprofit to solve some of that organization’s greatest needs.
This year, the Louisiana team worked with The Roots of Music, a MyCommunity partner which operates as an after-school program providing academic tutoring and musical mentoring for at-risk students. Domain’s relationship with The Roots of Music has grown over the years, with staff and property residents volunteering through volunteer time off, resident volunteer opportunities, and staff members serving on the organization’s board of trustees.
Last fall, The Roots of Music and Domain Companies began working on a response to an RFP to lease the former site of St. Paul’s Lutheran School in New Orleans. Domain worked closely with The Roots of Music staff to draft a proposal, and was awarded the lease.
Following the lease decision, Domain committed to upgrading and customizing the space as part of this year’s Community Day. Employees spent a productive day completing repairs, painting classrooms, and beautifying the organization’s new home.
The space is complete for Roots students to arrive later this month. Welcome to your new home, Roots of Music!
