  • Do you have an interest in fashion? What about finding great deals at local Thrift Stores? This event displays creative spins on recycled clothing and highlights the best of what the Bridge House Thrift Stores have to offer. While some people may see just a shower curtain, bean-bag chair or yoga mat, others recognize the potential to take the ordinary and make it into something unique. The event also features food from local restaurants, a silent auction (featuring items modeled on the runway), a cash bar, and entertainment! Proceeds benefit Bridge House/Grace House, which provides long-term residential, gender specific treatment to men and women who are dependent on alcohol or drugs. People you may never know but might occasionally see wandering the streets of New Orleans, broken and enslaved by the disease of addiction, will come to Bridge House / Grace House and find refuge, care and expert counseling, and many will, in due time, emerge contributing members of our beloved city with new lives of meaning and sobriety.

  • Over the past 25 years the Tulane University Drop-In Center & Clinic (DIC) has provided both medical and social services for runaway and homeless youth. The overarching mission of DIC is to improve the health and quality of life of homeless youth, between the ages of 12 to 24 years of age. The Center’s mission is to maintain a welcoming community for street youth that facilitates equality and establishes trust through meeting basic needs and providing support for self-sustainability. This is accomplished by providing a broad and comprehensive network of primary healthcare, substance abuse counseling and other behavioral health services, case management, as well as educational and outreach services within a collaborative environment of New Orleans youth-serving agencies.

    Every year the Drop-In Center has a “Winter Warmers” clothing drive to collect coats, scarves, gloves, socks and hats to keep youth on the streets warms when the temperatures begin to drop. Last year, with the help of the community, the Drop-In Center collected 1,157 articles of clothing and distributed them amongst 400 homeless youth in New Orleans. This year the Drop-In Center wants to aid more youth and will be hosting a “Winter Warmers KICKOFF Party” on November 6, 2015 at Café Istanbul to set off our clothing drive. We hope with the aid of YLC we will be able to promote, collect items, and raise funds for enough supplies for New Orleans homeless youth this Christmas Season!
