Located less than an hour from New Orleans and Baton Rouge, Hammond is in an area fast becoming one of the newest suburbs for both cities. Ginger Ford Northshore serves all of Tangipahoa Parish and eastern Livingston Parish. Ginger Ford Northshore builds new homes and repairs existing ones through the Greater Blessing program. Volunteers also build many wheelchair ramps in the area for elderly and disabled residents. Two stores at 955 S. Morrison Blvd. in Hammond support the mission:
The ReUse Store specializes in construction supplies, furniture and large appliances.
The Fuller Shop sells house wares and decorative items for the home.
