The New Orleans’ Women’s Shelter’s ( nolawomenshelter.org ) mission is to enable women to transition from a life of homelessness and poverty to one of stability and self-sufficiency.
We had the opportunity to tell their story as part of a project involving one of our Studio Vieux Carre brides, Julie Gerdes.
Upon contracting us to film their wedding, Julie and Andrew requested that we partake in a little "pay it forward" to a charitable organization, just as she requested from other vendors for her wedding.
After searching for a suitable organization we found the New Orleans Women's Shelter and Dawn Bradley-Fletcher, the Executive Director at the Women's shelter.
She was eager to tell the story of this organization and we were happy to help them get their message out of helping homeless and impoverished women gain self sufficiency.
This is a great organization that uses progressive thinking and positive reinforcement in order to achieve the goal of getting these women and their families back on their feet.
