grace at the greenlight
Grace at the Greenlight supports New Orleans’ homeless community by helping to provide for and restore, basic human needs: Food, water, community and human dignity. Grace operate the”I’m Going Home Program”, a first-of-its-kind program that provides homeless persons with cost-free social services, food, water, and transportation to reunite with loved ones in a permanent home. The “I’m Going Home Program” began in New Orleans and the need it served and its success in doing so spurred expansion to several major metropolitan areas across the nation. Grace’s aim is to expand the program still more so that the Nation’s homeless can enjoy the care of loved ones and the joy and dignity of a permanent home. In 2022, Grace has initiated Hydrate NOLA, a program that includes the installation of public water stations that will provide free, filtered water to the general public and unsheltered community to use.
