Leadership Volunteers

The New Orleans Women & Children’s Shelter relies on volunteers to not only work directly with our residents, but to power our events, make important community connects and lead the organization into the future. Leadership volunteers are a critical piece of the volunteer efforts at the Shelter and we deeply appreciate their time and talents!
