LUCAP Projects

Hunger Relief visits Crescent City Cafe, serving food with dignity to New Orleans' homeless population, connecting with service to the community, and bringing awareness to the issue of homelessness.

Students Against Hyper-Incarceration (SAHI) is a Loyola organization to raise awareness of America’s mass incarceration system as the new “Jim Crow,” in which people of color are targeted and victimized based upon race, and forced into the bottom of a caste system for the financial benefit of the “protectors” of the system. 

People for Animal Welfare and Service (PAWS) strives to bring a concern for animals to campus while providing assistance to animal rescue and welfare organizations in the New Orleans community.

Habitat for Humanity partners with Habitat’s New Orleans chapter to build affordable housing and to raise consciousness about rebuilding efforts.

Transportation to service sites is provided from Loyola University for most project events. To sign up for any project or to receive our weekly announcements, contact lucap@loyno.edu or find us on Facebook.
