The Need

Homelessness among vulnerable women and children in New Orleans is persistent and growing. This is evident at the New Orleans Women & Children’s Shelter, where demand for our services is rising. Our residential rooms generally fill within 48 hours of becoming vacant—sometimes quicker.

Women and children who find themselves homeless need more than just a room though. They need a comprehensive system of support that sets them on a journey to self-sustaining success. We fill this very unique need.
