The Red Stick Bras and All project strives to supply the shelters of Baton Rouge with sanitary products and underwear for women in need. In 2016, college professor Reva Hines saw that the local agencies providing for homeless women were lacking in women's items such as tampons, pads, bras and underwear. Assisi House has partnered with Red Stick Bras and All to organize the community's efforts in gathering and distributing to shelters all over the city and beyond.

There are hundreds of young people in our community who have literally been thrown away. They have been labeled as "hard to place", "difficult", or "severely damaged". The Estelle School believes all young people are worthy of being held in community, treated with kindness, and educated, regardless of their challenges. We use the power of storytelling and self-advocacy to work with these young people and those who serve them. We go beyond the surface of trauma-sensitive environments and go back to the universal roots that ground us in self-awareness, the needs for human interaction, and most of all love and acceptance without labels.
