Buras YMCA Community Center

Buras, LA

About this Project

The Buras Community Center is the second of four brand new centers to open in areas of Plaquemines Parish that were devastated by Hurricane Katrina. The two-story Center is approximately 17,340 square feet. It includes a fitness center, conference room, teen activity center, private administrative offices, training and classrooms and a swimming pool, with a movie theater in the works.

The Plaquemines YMCA board of directors donated the land to build the community center.  The result created a public-private partnership between Plaquemines Parish Government, FEMA, the YMCA, the United Way and a fundraising drive called the Plaquemines Legacy Campaign, which was sponsored by the United Way.
