A BIG Thank You to all who supported GIVE NOLA on June 2. We surpassed our goal and raised $12,500
We have returned home!
Due to the Covid-19, Hotel Hope moved  guests to the Troubadour Hotel for two months. Planning to reopen on June 1, we knew we needed to spruce up the hotel. Over 30 volunteers invaded Hotel Hope in preparation for the reopening. The hotel    looks great! Everyone pitched in to prepare  for new guests! We are grateful for the community support.
Home Sweet Home
We reopened the hotel on June 1st and presently we are serving 6 moms with 12 children! The youngest guest is one week old! The staff is so happy to be back at Hotel Hope MLK as we continue to serve the most
vulnerable in our community!
