We believe that meeting basic needs can be life-changing; that social programs don't have to be big, complicated, expensive or impersonal; and that human services are most effective when carried out in a spirit of kindness and caring. We also recognize a deep human need to express faith through action - to carry out God's will that we love one another. Our mission brings people together in service in a variety of areas; as donors and volunteers and through churches, schools, businesses, service clubs, and other nonprofit organizations.
Our vision is to engage the energy and spirit of the people of South Louisiana, to care for our neighbors who need help today, and to build healthier, more compassionate communities for tomorrow.
