Ozanam Inn Computer Lab
The Ozanam Inn is a non-profit agency that has been serving the homeless and needy of greater New Orleans since 1955. All services are provided free-of-charge. The Inn is equipped to sleep a minimum of 96 men per night and has instituted a rotation policy to ensure fairness on every man's amount overnight shelter. In addition to housing and food, Ozanam Inn offers other services to their clients including a computer lab.
Loyola students serving at Ozanam Inn will be involved in assisting homeless residents with computer issues. These issues might include learning the basics of computer usage (using a mouse, getting on the Internet) to more complicated tasks such as building a resume, setting up a Facebook account, listening to music, or finding a job via various online sites.
By serving at Ozanam Inn Loyola students would learn about their own stereotypes/prejudices. Many students come to the Inn with preconceptions about the homeless population of New Orleans only to find those preconceptions are inaccurate.
All students interested in serving at Ozanam Inn will be asked to attend a mandatory on-site training at Ozanam Inn.
