Travelers Aid Society of Greater New Orleans is housed in the Community Resource and Referral Center. In our facility, we are able to offer Day Shelter. As a place of Day Shelter, individuals may come to be indoors, make use of showers, telephone, laundry services, bathroom facilities, basic necessities that many of us might take for granted. We provide a safe place of respite for individuals to simply sit, or watch television, a space where there is no threat of arrest for loitering.
