What We Do
Our mission is to deliver hope to neighborhoods in New Orleans. We currently reach out to the New Orleans East community by providing hot meals, clothing, and baby items, such as diapers, wipes, and bottles. Consistent with many low income neighborhoods, the area we serve has a high rate of community violence and scarce mental health resources or outreach. In hopes of providing preventative care and disrupting the cycle of community violence we have created this site to connect individuals with mental health professionals, crime victim advocates, and other resources that they may not otherwise know they have access to.
If you find that you are in need of these resources, please visit our "Resources" page. If you are a business or individual who would like to be included as a community resource, please visit our "Contact Us" link and include a brief description about how you'd like to be involved.
At Love Your Neighbor NOLA, we know the value mental health can play in the success of an individual. Because we value this, we have created an easy to navigate space where communities can find mental health resources and support. We believe a first step to stopping cycles of violence is by addressing trauma. We recognize that mental health care isn't the only step but it is a crucial first step to individual freedom through peace of mind and the ability to reenter society without constant triggers.
Education & Outreach
Our vision is to expand to a place where we can offer more hands on teachings and trainings. With access to the right resources, people can become empowered by their own abilities and gain the confidence to fulfill their potential. Until then, we're happy to provide take home materials through our in-person outreaches.
We believe a strong family unit can create the support and nurture that children need to set them up for success as adults. We also understand family units all look differently and have different sets of needs. Sometimes the financial demands outweigh our best efforts to provide. In an effort to fill the gap that families may experience, we provide basic necessities, such as diapers, wipes, and bottles. If you want to know how you can contribute to our effort to fill the gap please visit our "Giving" link.
You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment. And a second is like it: you shall love your neighbor as yourself.
