Program of Hope – Homeless Ministry

  • Program of Hope: A ministry created by First Presbyterian Church in New Orleans, providing a holistic response to the variety of needs of people in the New Orleans area, who are without permanent housing.  This ministry assists with housing vouchers, clothing, food, counseling, worship and much more.  This outreach is completely run by volunteers.  Every Wednesday, those helped are provided with lunches, housing vouchers, bus tokens, donated clothing, toiletries, et al.  John Calvin is one of 5 rotating area Presbyterian Churches, providing volunteers to serve at First Presbyterian, as well, as support through donations of clothing and other items.

As always, seasonal clothing is needed, especially for men.  New underwear and socks are always appreciated.  Clothing items are collected anytime in the church office. Questions?   Contact Richard Britson or Sharon Fortin
