Project Ishmael was birthed in 2014 as a partner program of Hagar's House (www.HagarsHouseNOLA.org), which opened in 2007.  Hagar's House is a sanctuary for women and children in New Orleans that provides an open and empowering residential community, resource coordination, and a safe space to transition into permanent housing.

The mission of First Grace Community Alliance- the parent 501(c)(3) organization of both Project Ishmael and Hagar's House- is to work with and for people in need, especially women and children, by meeting food, housing and other emergency needs, while simultaneously challenging systemic poverty in the greater New Orleans area.
