Welcome to the HOPE Website

HOPE for the Homeless has been incorporated as Northwest Louisiana’s homeless coalition since 2001. Each year, over $3 million comes into our community from HUD specifically to serve the homeless. In order to utilize this money as effectively as possible, over 60 agencies and individuals serving those who experience homelessness meet each month to take a “big picture” look at the solutions to end homelessness.

HOPE leads the effort in area-wide strategic planning and provides area homeless service agencies opportunities to collaborate, network, and locate referral sources. We strive to achieve this through informative monthly Homeless Coalition meetings; by gathering, updating, and distributing information on the services that each agency provides; and by educating the community about homelessness and the agencies that work so hard to address this issue.

Our Mission and Vision

HOPE exists to address the housing and service needs of the homeless that will effectively transition them from homelessness to permanent and/or permanent supported housing and self-sufficiency.

HOPE envisions an integrated system of housing and services for the homeless guided by collaboration, enhanced by technology, and fostered by commitment that will lead homeless individuals and families to maximum self-sufficiency and permanent housing.
