Program areas at Desire Street Ministries

Coaching and caring - Desire Street strategically encourages, equips and connects leaders. This creates the long-term impact necessary for neighborhood revitalization. Through 3-5 year partnerships, we journey alongside leaders and their organizations to ensure they thrive in leadership, organizational health, and ministry effectiveness. To reach this goal, we offer our partners intensive training, mentoring, and shepherding. We also provide counsel and resources to a wider range of leaders who seek our expertise and help effectiveness.
Educating and engaging - Desire Street gathers and directs resources toward the goal of revitalizing under-resourced neighborhoods. We raise awareness of the overwhelming challenges, and celebrate successes, with the thousands of kids and families we reach. This engages community advocates, and creates social capital for the fight against poverty in our cities. Desire Street serves as the intersection of lives, leaders and neighborhoods.
Stewarding and Supporting a restructuring of our former program of Investing and Revitalizing, in order to fit our ongoing mission. Having donated our New Orleans property to a local ministry in the prior fiscal year, Desire Street continues to practice good stewardship by investing resources there where the Ministry began, and in our Baton Rouge property. We continue to maintain relationship with former ministry partners in the New Orleans facility which contains a community center, an early childhood learning center and a full-service medical clinic.
