“This is a new phase for our organization, providing a brighter future for so many in need.” — Clarence Adams, CEO of Ozanam Inn, a nonprofit that has supported the homeless population in New Orleans since 1955. On Jan. 5, Ozanam Inn announced it had purchased a new facility at 2239 Poydras St., that will allow the organization to expand its bed capacity from 96 to 150. It will also expand its medical and dental services with a dedicated clinic suite to include four medical exam rooms and a large dental exam room, allowing Ozanam’s partners at LSU School of Medicine, Tulane University Medical School and LSU School of Dentistry the opportunity to provide basic healthcare to hundreds more individuals each year.
