New Year, New Opportunities


We can't believe that it is already 2016! It seems like we just began implementing our 2015 vision but in reality, we've been at it for a year and seen some incredible progress. We focused on collaborative partnerships and solutions; by doing so have implemented a new downtown outreach specialist to engage the individuals currently living in proximity to downtown. We also focused on community education by seeking out opportunities to speak with students, volunteers, and local businesses about the current state of homelessness in Acadiana and the methods we use to end it. In 2016 we will continue to focus on these areas and also share creative ways for you to participate in the Year of Mercy. 

We know that you are probably thinking about your New Year Resolutions right now, so we'd like to give you some ideas.
