Christmas Dinner for the Homeless

Bridge House / Grace House hosts three dinners each year to provide a traditional holiday meal, toiletries, clothing, and fellowship to homeless and indigent individuals and/or residents.

Each year Bridge House / Grace House hosts three dinners.  These three events provide a traditional holiday meal, toiletries, clothing from the Bridge House / Grace House Thrift Stores, and fellowship to the homeless and indigent population of the Greater New Orleans Area.  The dinners also help to raise awareness—within the homeless and indigent population—of the substance abuse treatment services provided by Bridge House / Grace House.
