We Love Our Student Volunteers!

Every year Lantern Light has the privilege of hosting an abundance of schools who seek volunteer opportunities for their students. These schools often range from elementary to college and are often located as little as 15 minutes away from our organization, while others are 1,500 miles away. These teachers and students learn about what we do and find ways to help us achieve our mission to care for those in need. As the school year comes to an end, Lantern Light wishes to extend their deepest appreciation to all academic institutions that supported our organization during this school year. Whether you coordinated donations, provided meals, or completed volunteer opportunities, we are truly grateful that you chose our agency as an opportunity to give back to our community. If you are interested in bringing your students to Lantern Light during the 2017-2018 academic school year please contact us for more information today.



On May 2, 2017 The Greater New Orleans Foundation will host GiveNola, a 24 hour event that raises money for local organizations. On Tuesday, May 2, 2017, 4:00 pm – 6:00 pm, Lantern Light invites you to Open House at the Rebuild Center.

Come and learn how your monetary donations to Lantern Light at the Rebuild Center will help us continue the services we provide to the homeless and less fortunate of New Orleans.



If one Miracle is Happening Somewhere, then Miracles are Happening Everywhere.

Every day at Lantern Light we witness miracles.  Someone gets a good medical report, someone finds out they are going to be housed, or someone obtains their birth certificate or identification card after numerous attempts.  While these successes might not seem to be major incidents to you, for others they may be the difference between life and death.  In a world that often seems bleak and filled with hopelessness, these sprinkles of miracles restore hope and faith to the guests we serve. Is there a report you’re waiting on?  Is there a solution to one problem you’ve been experiencing that could possibly change your life around?  If so, don’t lose hope.  Keep the faith.  You never know, your miracle might just be on the way!


Help Lantern Light Continue Fighting Hunger

For years Lantern Light has endeavo the hungry and homeless of New Orleans, as our feeding programs are at the heart of our ministry.  Monday – Friday, our organization provides meals to anyone that comes through our doors at 8:00 am and 1:00 pm.  These feedings draw almost 200 or more individuals daily and they often shed light on the global issue of hunger and poverty.

From now through March 31st, you can participate in Gulf Coast Bank’s community rewards program and support Lantern Light in its efforts to continue the fight against hunger.  By casting one vote daily for our organization, you can help the ministry to win a share of $50,000.00 that will be distributed among the top 10 non-profit organizations who gain the most votes. Join us now.  With a click of your computer mouse, you can support Lantern Light’s feeding program and help to fight hunger.

Vote here daily through March 31st.


When Social Work Works!

The mark of a good social worker can often be found in an individual that possesses the 3 C’s, caring, creative, and confident.  All of these great qualities are found in Lantern Light’s social worker, Catheryn Major.  Initially, Ms. Major joined the agency as an intern, and was later asked to join our staff upon obtaining her Master’s Degree in Social Work.  She used her confidence and creativity to quickly learn the ins and outs of the organization, and with a caring heart, she has won the trust and admiration of the many guests for whom she provides various services to everyday.  Ms. Major is a true asset to Lantern Light and we applaud her efforts to help enhance, empower, and enrich the lives of the individuals that she serves.
