Project Lazarus is a transitional living facility for people living with HIV/AIDS in the greater New Orleans area.
We have a residential capacity of 23, and serve about about 70 people annually. Our housing program provides each person with an individual room, three nutritious meals per day, and consistent support and case management. The clinical program includes individual and group counseling, medical case management, as well as referrals to other vital community resources. Our mission of healing and empowering people living with HIV/AIDS means fostering a compassionate and comfortable living environment with staff on site at all times.
Project Lazarus has a long history of serving people living with HIV/AIDS in the greater New Orleans community. We opened our doors in 1985 as a hospice for people who were dying from AIDS to come and spend the final days of their life peacefully and respectfully. To this day, we remain a steadfast and trusted service provider for those who are HIV positive in New Orleans, especially those who have been historically underserved.
Project Lazarus, while an independent and non-denominational 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, is sponsored by the Archdiocese of New Orleans. The Archdiocese generously donates the use of the buildings for the programs.
Project Lazarus is governed by a volunteer Board of Directors with Dirk Wild serving as the Archdiocesan Liaison to the Board of Directors. Project Lazarus has full financial and fund-raising responsibilities for its operations, repairs, renovations, and maintenance.
