Our Programs

Here's how we are making a difference across North Louisiana

Emergency Assistance

This needs-based program assists families with rent, utilities, food and other daily needs, as well as referrals to other agencies for assistance in times of personal crisis.

Money $chool

Money $chool is a 2-hour course dedicated to helping one understand the impact of their credit score, banking basics, management of your income, predatory lending, saving for the future and asset building.

Gabriel's Closet

Gabriel’s Closet serves low-income new parents, their infants, and small children. The shop, largely run and staffed by volunteers, helps parents get off to a good start by supplying many of the items that they might need for their children.

Immigration Services

Our Immigration and Family Services practitioners work with individuals who need help in navigating forms, legal documents, immigration standing and understanding the requirements necessary for immigrants and their families to successfully live in our community.

English as a Second Language Courses

Catholic Charities offers classes in both ESL and Citizenship in our desire to help our immigrant neighbors have the opportunity to live and work in our community.

State Benefit Application Assistance

Our case worker assists individuals in completing applications for SNAP (Supplemental Nutritional Assistance Program – formerly the Food Stamp
Program) as well as other programs that help families to be whole.

Client Testimonials

Inspiring words from past clients
Joseph Odom

Joseph Odom

"I enjoyed and learned a lot about budgeting and my case manager was excellent and so kind. I would recommend anybody to come here!"

"I lost my job due to the COVID-19 virus; I wasn't able to pay my rent or bills. I came to Catholic Charities for help and it was the best experience I had. They taught me a lot. The class was great. I like that they took out time with me trying to help and listen. In a few words, they were heaven sent!
After the class I went home and thought about everything [my case manager] said, and it made me feel more confident. She made me want to do better."

"The whole staff was great. They engaged in conversation and made me feel as though they actually cared about my situation. It was great to know that I wasn't alone during these hard times. I'm glad to come across people so kind and understanding."
