Hosted by Mary and Joel Funderburk and Erica and James Reiss

Bastion is an intentionally designed neighborhood in New Orleans for returning warriors and families. Through our powerful community model which incubates meaningful relationships that endure for a lifetime, we will sustain a thriving recovery from the wounds and casualties of war. 

Phase 1 of Bastion is complete and 100% leased up with 73 residents with over 196 years of combined military service. The progress we've made has been remarkable, but there is still work to be done... 

Bastion broke ground on January 2, 2018 for Phase 2 construction that will build an additional 20 homes for warriors and their families. Please consider being a part of Building Bastion and take pride in knowing you are the reason the first intentional community in the nation for warriors and their families was built.
