Raintree Children and Family Services is a non-profit social service organization serving the Greater New Orleans Area since 1926. Although partially funded by the State of Louisiana, Raintree, we rely on community support to exceed the standards that state funding allows. A major source of private funding comes from foundations, corporate sponsors, and individual donors who support the agency’s mission and want to share its work. Raintree Children and Family Services is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit agency nationally accredited through the Council on Accreditation, a member of the Child Welfare League, and is a United Way partner agency. All contributions are tax-deductible.
