  • 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.
