About Us

"The Walker Economic Development Foundation is a resource to assist the underserved communities of the Greater New Orleans area by providing measures of recreation, rehabilitation, restoration, and revitalization through charitable, educational, and vocational efforts"


The Walker Economic Development Foundation (WEDF) was created with the idea of helping those in need. Ever since our organization was established, we have endeavored to provide help where the need is greatest.  Founded in 2012, WEDF is the non-profit affiliate of the Walker Affiliates, LLC group.  We are deeply rooted in the west bank communities of the Greater New Orleans area.  Our initial efforts are focused on the neighborhoods of Algiers (70114 & 70131) and Gretna (70053 & 70056).


Through partnerships with private donors, civic agencies, business enterprises, and community and social groups, WEDF has initiated several projects within the community.  Take a look at the News & Events!


Our team is made up entirely of volunteers. We advocate for those who need our help. Even a little help goes a long way.  That is why we are especially happy to find new volunteers who share our commitment to doing good in the world.  Do you want to support us by helping with our work? Then do not hesitate to contact us.  A helping hand is always greatly appreciated!
