Mission renovate its main building at 1130 Oretha Castle Haley Blvd., which has been in a state of disrepair for many years. The New Orleans Mission, which serves all people regardless of religion, gender, is a Christian Humanitarian Organization dedicated to working with homeless and hurting people to help them reach their full potential through rescue, recovery and re-engagement.

“This is such an important initiative for the city of New Orleans,” says Maria Muro, publisher of New Orleans Living and founder of LiveWell Louisiana. “Everyone deserves a second chance, and our homeless population will benefit greatly from the renovated mission.”

The plans for the renovation, which will total more than $6 million, will feature classrooms for job and skills training, an updated kitchen, a new chapel, improved dormitories, clothing rooms, an expanded medical clinic, re-entry offices, intake offices, laundry services, an elevator for handicap access and a day room where homeless individuals can seek shelter from the streets during the day.
