Project SAVE Offers a Safe Haven

Julia met her husband while they were coworkers in Russia. Shortly after the birth of their son, he convinced her to temporarily move to his hometown of New Orleans to care for his mother. Well educated and employed in her home country, Julia now found herself isolated in the U.S. Her husband's abuse was not only physical, but mental and emotional. "He was threatening to deport me. When I told his family about the abuse, they would say they don't understand my English," she recalls. 

Luckily, Julia was connected with the caring, compassionate staff at Project SAVE (Stopping Abuse Through Victim Empowerment). See how Project SAVE changed Julia's life.

Louisiana has the highest incarceration rate per capita in the world and the most legal restrictions on employment for ex-prisoners in the country. Each year, Catholic Charities' Cornerstone Builders, in collaboration with other local organizations and community leaders, hosts a Symposium for Systemic Change and Criminal Justice Reform that concentrates on systemic change in the criminal justice system with the ultimate goal of ending mass incarceration.

Featuring more than a dozen speakers and mass celebrated by Archbishop Greogry Aymond, this year's symposium will take place on Friday, October 21, 2016, from 9 AM to 2 PM at St. Agnes Church (3310 Jefferson Hwy.) Mass will be held at 8 AM. More details here.

Donated items included diapers, wipes, baby carriers, socks and shoes, clothing, linens, toiletry items, vouchers to shop at the Junior League Store and more. Thank you, ladies, for your continued generosity and support!
