House of Tulip

House of Tulip
New Orleans, LA

We’re raising funds to buy and restore a multi-family property in an area of New Orleans that’s accessible to health care and employment opportunities. This will be our pilot permanent housing campus, and it will house up to 10 TGNC people at a time. In addition, we’re working to acquire a separate space that can serve as a community center where TGNC people can safely access social safety net navigation, community programming, a hot meal, a shower, or a safe place to just hang out or do schoolwork.
