Maison Hospitaliere

Maison Hospitaliere

To provide assistance to indigent women in the Greater New Orleans area.

Open Date 08/19/19
Due Date 09/06/19

In 1879 Coralie Correjolles organized 30 women into “La Socíeté Hospitaliere des Dames Louisianaises” to provide food and medicine to the needy of New Orleans, many of whom had lost everything during the Civil War. The group became especially concerned by the plight of elderly ladies, who, due to the loss of their husbands in the war, were destitute and living in squalid conditions. Through its collection of 10 cent monthly dues over 14 years, the Socíeté was able to raise the money for its first building, 822 Barracks Street, to provide residence for 20 women. Over the next 113 years Maison Hospitaliere evolved into a skilled nursing facility for both men and women. Hurricane Katrina scattered both residents and staff across the country, and in November 2006 the board decided to close the facility.

When the Maison Hospitaliere sold its French Quarter complex for more than $4 million, the proceeds were incorporated into a Supporting Organization of the Greater New Orleans Foundation so that the Maison’s mission could continue by making grants to organizations serving women and their families.  Grants will be made available to 501(c)(3) organizations that provide living assistance and care to indigent women in the Greater New Orleans area.  These grants will support direct services to women in the form of either general operating support or program support. Grants will range up to $20,000.

Maison Hospitaliere will NOT consider capital projects, event sponsorship, or research requests. Faith-based organizations are welcome to apply for support for programs that do not include religious activities, such as religious worship, instruction, or proselytization.
