New Orleans' Kingsley House Continues to Support the Community

Since 1896, Kingsley House has been offering nationally accredited & state certified education, adult and community services in the Greater New Orleans area.

Many of the city’s firsts happened at Kingsley House:

The First Kindergarten in New Orleans started at Kingsley House, the New Orleans Recreation Department ( NORD) started there, the Lighthouse for the Blind had its origins there and the Tulane School of Social Work began at Kingsley House.

The nonprofit annually serves approximately 7,000 individuals through services including: Adult Day Care, Early Learning Services and Community and Supportive Services Programs. WWNO's Karl Lengel sat down with Keith Leiderman, Kingsley House CEO, and Natalie Fenno, Director of Adult Services to talk about this remarkable asset to the city.

Karl Lengel has worked in the lively arts as an actor, announcer, manager, director, administrator and teacher. In broadcast, he has accumulated over two decades of on-air experience and is currently WWNO’s anchor for NPR’s “All Things Considered” and a host for “Louisiana Considered”. He holds a BS in Professional Management from Nova Southeastern University and an MFA in Film and Theatre from the University of New Orleans.
