New Orleans Women & Children's Shelter

Let’s End Homelessness, Together.

We are the largest sheltering organization dedicated to serving the most under-served and vulnerable population in Greater New Orleans: homeless families.

Breaking the Cycle

We are on a mission to enable women and their children to transition from a life of homelessness and poverty to one of stability and self-sufficiency.  We provide so much more than shelter and meals – all at no cost to our families – we also provide intensive case management during our residents’ stay and for at least 18 months afterwards, children’s programs (after-school and summer), workforce development programs, financial literacy, and more!
