Local Outreach Programs
Program of Hope
Metairie Ridge partners with other Presbyterian Churchs in the New Orleans Area to help meet the homeless population's needs. Program of Hope a holistic ministry to respond to the variety of needs of people who are without permanent housing. This missional outreach creates a welcoming and nurturing environment assisting with housing vouchers, clothing, counseling, spiritual needs, healing, food, finding employment, shelter, moving into housing, and much more. This outreach is unique because it is entirely run by volunteers, some of whom have been homeless.
The program takes place every Wednesday at 9:00 AM. Volunteers arrive early to help set up.
Metairie Ridge hosts POH two months out of the year, and we can use your help! Contact us for more information.
Jefferson Presbyterian Food Bank
Hunger is a significant problem that affects far too many families, and Jefferson Presbyterian Church created a Food Pantry to meet that need. Please join us as we support our sister church to help our brothers and sisters in need.
The Food Pantry takes place on the first Saturday of every month. Setup for the pantry typically occurs on Thursdays, but it does vary. Please contact the church office to find out the schedule for the week.
