We are a small intentional community located at 1910 Constance St, the Irish Channel. Our primary ministry is to invite people who are experiencing homelessness to live with us in community while being supported in transitioning to a better living situation for themselves. Volunteers live together with guests and share a life of daily meals, house responsibilities, and enjoying time together. Space is limited, and typically we have 2 to 5 residents living with us at a time.
On Tuesdays and Thursdays, we bring dinner for 20 to 60 folks at the Hope House around the corner. From 6:30 to 8:30, we enjoy a meal, conversation, watch a movie, use internet, and relax from the elements in a safe and comfortable environmental. We are grateful for all those who have volunteered to help cook this meal and do dishes at Hope House and welcome anyone who is interested to contact us at 504-527-5363.
We bring breakfast to day laborers at Home Depot on Carrollton on Wednesdays 8am. It’s a great opportunity to support this community of people who have done so much to help rebuild New Orleans as well as a chance to practice Spanish. Anyone is welcome to join us! Bring fruit or a light snack to share if you like.
We have a couple garden with some vegetables as well as a compost bin. In our driveway is a beautiful coop with 3 chickens who pay their rent share with beautiful brown eggs every morning!
In addition to all this, we have a different speaker from the community who enlightens us on local and global issues every 3rd Friday of the month at our Clarification of Thought. We publish a newsletter 6 times a year, and Joe leads a bible study every first and third Wednesday of the month. We are available to speak to any groups interested in learning more about the Catholic Worker movement.
Gratitude and love to the countless individuals throughout New Orleans and beyond who work for peace and justice and support us in so many ways. Thanks to you, we are able to continue offering a welcoming place for people of many different walks of life to come together.
