The Faith Home
In 1873, Joanna P. Moore, a native of Pennsylvania, came to Louisiana under the
auspices of the Women's Baptist Home Missionary Society.  During her time in
New Orleans and southeast Louisiana, she did many good works, especially for
African-Americans of the area.  She helped form church schools, Bible study
groups and tutored both children and adults in reading.  She started various trade
classes for young women, from sewing to secretarial skills.  In 1879, she
established the Faith Home for elderly Black women who had no place to live.  
The Faith Home was still in existence in 1902, when Miss Moore published her
autobiography.  I don't know it's location or how much longer it was open and,
unfortunately, I don't have the names of the ladies pictured above.  The photos
are from her autobiography, "In Christ's Stead."  She died in 1916.
