At the end of our lives, we will not be judged by how many diplomas we have received, how much money we have made, or how many great things we have done. We will be judged by "I was hungry and you gave me to eat." "I was naked and you clothed me." "I was homeless and you took me in."
- Mother Theresa
WELCOME TO THE INN!
As a special work of the Society of St. Vincent de Paul, our priority is to offer aid and comfort to the poor and needy in our community. While this is the foundation of our organization’s mission, it is only part of the work we do at Ozanam Inn. In order to end the suffering and homelessness of those in need, we work with all who come to us to move them from homelessness and hopelessness to independent living and a renewed meaning of self-worth. Through case management, job and life skills training, medical treatment, legal counsel and more, our staff and volunteers work with each client’s individual needs. It is the goal of Ozanam Inn to comfort and aid the suffering and help them realize their potential.
Clarence J. Adams, Sr., Administrator, of Ozanam Inn is happy to announce that the first FORGOTTEN ANGELS Scholarship has been awarded to Ms. Shaneka N. Richardson. Shaneka is a resident of Covenant House and a 2014 graduate of Warren Easton Senior High School in New Orleans. She has been accepted into Xavier University of Louisiana, and her grant check in the amount of $3,000 has been received by the University. These monies will be incorporated into her financial aid award. The money can be used for tuition, fees, books, boarding and for other educational expenses, and there is no need to repay the scholarship.
We give a man a fish to eat today, we teach a man to fish for tomorrow!
