THE STORY:

While in New Orleans for the Annual Meeting of the APHA, SciMetrika is working with Citypak to provide backpacks to the homeless population supported by the New Orleans Mission.

SciMetrika will match your donation to the New Orleans Mission dollar-for-dollar, up to $5,000!

We invite you to contribute to the New Orleans Mission to support their ministry to the homeless, which includes serving more than 20,000 delicious meals a month and providing shelter to 220 people a night. The Mission building is in need of renovations to continue serving the homeless population of New Orleans in the best way possible.

 

The New Orleans Mission is the largest, full service Christian charity in the Gulf South. The Mission is an Interdenominational organization.

Established in 1989, the New Orleans Mission is a private 501(C)(3) nonprofit organization initially created as a service provider for a growing population of homeless men living in our city. Today, we are the largest faith based private service provider among 60 shelters catering to the homeless population of New Orleans. Our overnight shelter capacity has grown from 80 men to 244, including 32 women.

The CITYPAK Project was founded by Chicago businessman and philanthropist Ron Kaplan to provide a safe, convenient and versatile backpack uniquely designed to meet the constantly changing needs of the homeless.

Inspired by the simple desire to create something that would make life on the streets of Chicago a little easier, Ron shared his idea with the design team at the international adventure travel gear manufacturer High Sierra. The ongoing goal: to design and provide a useful, high quality backpack for the homeless.

SciMetrika is a dynamic, privately held business with a singular focus on improving human health. Founded in 2001, the company’s steady performance is reflected in its regular inclusion on national and local lists of fast-growing businesses. With a seasoned executive team and a multidisciplinary team of public health and technical professionals, we seek out and take on opportunities where we can bring rigor and innovation to solve complex population health challenges.
