Providing a place of peace, support, and encouragement to the working poor and homeless, in downtown New Orleans, as they rebuild their lives.

. . . forever moving from despair to Hope!
— Our Vision
Thank You Volunteers!
On Friday, December 6, 2019 Lantern Light held our annual Donor and Volunteer Reception at the Rebuild Center. We thank all those that attended and hope that this year’s event was enjoyed by all. We are extremely grateful for the thousands of individuals that support our ministry daily. We cannot assist the guests that came to our doors daily without your contributions.
We send a huge THANK YOU to Beth Monahan, our kitchen coordinator and our Tuesday Kitchen volunteers for providing beautiful decorations and great food, led by board member David Hardin: Gene Ducote, Dell Jordan, Danny Sobrepera and Joy Zainey. We also thank our musicians for great music, Catherine DeMers, Terance Anderson, and Clarence Robinson.
With Warmest Regards,
The Board and Staff of Lantern Light

"Being at Lantern Light has helped me more than I have helped the guests. I truly feel a spiritual connection with each person I see daily. It makes me more humble and I hope I'm giving off the same vibes."

Helen Keller once said, “Alone, we can do so little; Together, we can do so much.” As a ministry that has been providing services for the Greater New Orleans area for over a decade, Lantern Light understands the power of working together. As we approach the end of another school year, we want to express our thanks to the administration, staff and students from several schools who helped us in various ways to provide meals and other essentials to the homeless and less fortunate. We are especially grateful to students from several schools who supported our agency since the beginning of this year. We salute their efforts and know that with their continued support, we will have a better tomorrow.
