Empowering equity with shelter and more

women and children's shelter

The New Orleans Women and Children’s Shelter is proud to be a part of our community safety net, promoting equity through immediate wraparound and long-term support  for homeless families.

Homelessness is a poverty issue,  but  poverty disproportionately affects people of color. Thirty-two percent of Black and 19% of Asian households in New Orleans live in poverty compared to 10% of White households.

Over half of New Orleans households rent and now, with 25% of people unemployed  and  eviction bans lifted, many families  are  at risk. Together, we can empower families  on  the long road to stability.
