The latest news from Eden House...
Thank You for Helping us to Celebrate Carnival!
Mardi Gras offered our residents ample opportunities to celebrate despite parade cancelations. Residents crafted beautiful shoebox floats during an art therapy session, strolled around the city on a house float tour, and enjoyed a delicious Carnival meal of jambalaya, red beans and rice, and king cake, generously provided by a group of moms whose children attend Isidore Newman School! Thank you to everyone who helped us make this Mardi Gras a joyful and, most importantly, safe one!
Spring is nearly here and Eden House is seeking volunteer groups to give our garden some much needed TLC. Groups must be limited to no more than 10 people and masks are required. Please reach out to our volunteer coordinator through the link below to schedule a service day if you are able!

Eden House is seeking donations of toiletries especially shampoo, conditioner, deodorant, floss, and nail care kits. Please contact assistant@edenhousenola.org for more information or to schedule a donation drop off or pick up. Thank you!
Thank you to the thoughtful students from Archbishop Chapelle High School who put together lovely Valentine's Day goody bags featuring heartfelt handwritten cards for our residents. We feel the love!
After some delays, and a few virtual meetings, we were able to resume our internship program for the Spring semester! We offer a warm Eden House welcome to our newest team members! Keep an eye out for intern spotlights in the weeks to come.
Eden House recently received two much needed donations! A gently used laptop donated by Jhane Phillips and a refurbished Nikon camera from John L. Thomas. Thank you so much for your kindness and generosity! We've already begun to put these devices to good use!
