New Orleans Women and Children's Shelter Outreach (NOWCS)

Established in 2015, the New Orleans Women and Children's Shelter Outreach is dedicated to serving the community. There are currently two shelter locations, Liberty Street and Chateau d’Orleans. Students provide health education to the women living in the shelter and engage the children in various activities. Once a month, there are also clinics for the shelters which can range from a pediatric clinic to a health fair.

For more information about the NOWCS Outreach program, please visit our website and Facebook page.  If you are interested in getting involved in this community service project, please contact a student leader noted below.
