Nonprofit group acquires portion of old Holy Cross Campus

New Orleans, La. - Leaders of the Holy Cross School and the nonprofit New Orleans Baptist Ministries announced Friday the sale and donation of a significant portion of the former Holy Cross campus in the Lower Ninth Ward to the local faith-based nonprofit.

NOBM plans to open a primary care medical clinic, Christ Community Health Services-NOLA in the 1000 block of St. Claude Avenue, on empty lots formerly owned by the historic all-boys Catholic middle and high school.

It will be the only clinic serving the historic but hard-hit Lower 9.
