We are currently accepting a limited amount of gently-used clothing for our youth ages 16-22. We ask that you include in your donation only washed seasonally- and age-appropriate clothing items at this time. Donation drop-offs are usually easiest in our administration lobby during regular business hours (M-F, 8am-5pm).
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.
CHNOLA is open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Much more than “just a shelter,” we provide supportive counseling and the tools needed to help our youth become independent, productive members of our community.
