The Albert Jr. and Tina Small City Center at Tulane School of Architecture is excited to announce a new collaborative design project with the local organization, Ozanam Inn.
For over sixty years, Ozanam Inn has provided emergency night shelter and services for the homeless and under-served within New Orleans. Ozanam Inn fulfills the basic human needs of food, shelter, and clothing; additionally, Ozanam Inn provides case management and counseling, job and life skills training and placement, dental and mental healthcare treatment (in partnership with Tulane and LSU Medical and Dental Schools), and legal counsel to its clients. Over the past three years, Ozanam Inn has helped more than 300 individuals and families move into permanent housing, and assisted over 150 men gain employment with local companies.
Thanks to a generous gift from an anonymous donor, City Center will work with Ozanam Inn in Fall 2016 to transform the current daytime gathering area into a more comfortable, functional, and visually appealing place for clients. We’ll be collaborating with staff, clients, and stakeholders to design and build a space that supports the great work that everyone at Ozanam Inn is doing to improve lives in New Orleans.
We’re excited to get to work this fall semester, with a new krewe of students and exciting new partners. We hope to see all of you at City Center to celebrate the completion of this project with us!
