Transitional Housing

Louisiana has one of the highest homeless children in America per capita.

Homeless women with children are the fastest growing population of homeless and domestic violence is a leading cause for women becoming homeless. While friendship house is NOT a safe house for women leaving abusive situations, we do encounter a great deal of homeless women with children that need a safe place to call home, while they rebuild their lives from whatever circumstances caused them to become homeless.

 

Friendship house seeks to minister to the whole person through each of our programs. We help those we meet build skills to become self-sufficient and develop a relationship with Jesus.  We are able to provide hot meals, clothing, showers, job readiness and life skills, case management, etc. for the ladies in the program.
