shelter services


Catholic Charities of Acadiana strives to respond to men, women, children, and veterans experiencing homelessness within the eight-parish region that is the Diocese of Lafayette.

We focus on ensuring that experiences of homelessness are rare and brief. Shelter services focus on rapidly returning families to permanent housing, with a goal of stabilization through intensive and personalized case management services continuing after housing placement.

Currently, the average length of stay in one of our shelters is 52 days.
