The New Orleans Artists Against Hunger and Homelessness, Inc. (NOAAHH) began in 1985 when Grammy Award winner and lead vocalist of the Neville Brothers, Aaron Neville and two-time Grammy nominee songwriter/musician Allen Toussaint brought together a group of New Orleans musicians for the purpose of performing a concert to benefit the hungry and homeless of metro New Orleans.

Today, NOAAHH has developed into a successful nonprofit organization that annually presents concerts and gala celebrity mixers to raise funds to help alleviate hunger and homelessness in the metro New Orleans area. NOAAHH is governed by an all-volunteer Board of Directors headed by Sister Jane F. Remson, O.Carm. Board Volunteering his time with NOAAHH's Board of Directors is Executive Producer Quint Davis, Producer/Director of the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival.

Joining NOAAHH in their efforts are corporate sponsors whose support is needed to cover the production costs of the events. These sponsors donate both cash and in-kind services for which they are duly recognized in NOAAHH's extensive publicity.

Proceeds from the concerts are distributed in metro New Orleans by the NOAAHH Board of Directors. To date over a half million dollars has been distributed to charity since the first NOAAHH concert.
