Clothing Donation and Volunteer Update

In light of the recent increase in COVID-19 cases in the city of New Orleans, we are not accepting clothing donations until October 1st, 2021.

If you would like to donate items for our Hurricane Ida recovery please visit our Amazon Wishlist or give a gift to assist our efforts here

In accordance with the policies of the City of New Orleans, we are allowing a limited amount of in person volunteer opportunities. Additionally, as of July 2021, we are requiring that all volunteers be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 prior to volunteering on-site. For more information on availability or virtual volunteer opportunities please contact volunteerNOLA@covenanthouse.org.

We are always in need of items that benefit our residents. Our core group is 220 youth ages 22 and under and their children. Check out our Amazon Wishlist to learn about the items in high demand. 

To ensure a clean and safe space for all of our residents, we are unable to accept any previously used household goods, bedding, towels, toys, stuffed animals, mattresses, pillows, makeup, or toiletries. We can accept a limited number of gently-used furniture donations. These must be coordinated ahead of time–please send photos & dimensions of furniture to chnoinfo@covenanthouse.org.

We are located at  611 N. Rampart, New Orleans, LA 70112. Donations can be dropped off on weekdays during our regular business hours (8am-5pm) in our administration building lobby. Please contact Haley Khoury at hkhoury@covenanthouse.org or 504-584-1132 with any questions or concerns. 

Safety and the privacy of our residents and their families are our primary concern. To maintain our status as a sanctuary, donors are not allowed to personally distribute gifts directly to our residents.

If you would like to coordinate a large donation or a donation drive, please contact Haley Khoury at hkhoury@covenanthouse.org.
