New Orleans Mission and our partners are devoted to being God's hands and feet in our region. In addition to providing physical relief to those in immediate need of food, clothing and shelter, we put a special emphasis on equipping those who want to experience real change with the biblical principles and knowledge needed to create sustainable solutions to permanently end addiction, abuse and homelessness. We're committed to listening to the needs of every individual we serve and addressing the core issues that cause their circumstances, rather than treating symptoms with a temporary fix.

Mission statement

Our strategy is to RESCUE people from unimaginable circumstances, strengthen the RECOVERY efforts of those that seek our support, and foster the successful RE-ENGAGEMENT back into society as healthy, disciplined, skilled people ready to lead a sustainable, productive, purpose-driven life.
