HTC Receives Grants from City of New Orleans and the Brown Foundation

The Harry Tompson Center recently received a grant in the amount of $10,000 from the City of New Orleans Wisner Foundation and a grant for $12,500 from the Joseph and Dorothy Brown Foundation. The Wisner Foundation Grant will help us obtain hygienic and medical supplies for use at our Center. The Brown Foundation grant covers part of the cost of one of our Center Assistants and also provides money for hygienic supplies. If you check out our most recent update on services provided at HTC, you will see that a substantial number of people are utilizing our showers and laundry services, as well as obtaining hygiene kits from us. These funds help make it possible to continue providing vital services to so many folks. On behalf of our guests who are the real beneficiaries, we offer many, many thanks to Mayor Landrieu and the city of New Orleans Wisner Foundation and to the Brown Foundation for their generous financial support.
