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.
Questions or concerns about donations? Email email us at email@example.com.
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.
Interested in Volunteering?
For volunteer positions interacting directly with youth, individuals must be 25 or older. We also ask for at least a six month commitment to a regular schedule.
We also ask that, if possible, volunteers donate $25 to cover the cost of processing the background check.

We love our volunteers, and are always open to new ideas! For any questions related to volunteering, email volunteerNOLA@covenanthouse.org.
Please note that we cannot validate court mandated volunteer hours.
