David Bottner is Executive Director of the New Orleans Mission. The New Orleans Mission plays an important role in helping New Orleansâ€™ homeless get back on their feet.
The missionâ€™s overnight shelter houses 215 people, and it reserves 32 beds specifically for women. In addition to getting people off of the streets and onto paths to lead healthy, fulfilling lives, the mission works hard to increase the publicâ€™s awareness about homelessness and change perceptions about who the homeless are. Accordingly, the theme of the 2016 gala fundraiser is â€śChanging the Face of Homelessnessâ€ť. The missionâ€™s annual gala will be on Friday, November 4, 2016 at the Hyatt Hotel. For tickets, go to NewOrleansMission.org
In addition to welcoming vital monetary donations, the New Orleans Mission is always looking for volunteers.
