About the Peace Center How We Serve our Community Our Sponsor Donate

Life at the Peace Center

Most of us, when asked, “How are you, today?” will answer “OK” or “I’m just fine. Thanks for asking.”

Not so from neighbors around the Peace Center in New Orleans, Louisiana.

Mr. Herman joyfully says, “I am still above the ground!”

Miss Barbara slowly responds, “I am blessed.”

This is life at the Peace Center. These are our friends and our neighbors.
With Jesus at our center and the help of our many volunteers and generous donors, we build peace in our shared home.
