How We Help

CCNLA is strengthening families across 16 civil parishes in North Louisiana. By offering a handup and not a handout, we ensure that families of any faith are secure and protected for the future.

Emergency Assistance

Needs based program for assistance with rent, utilities, food and other daily needs as well as referrals to other local agencies that may be able to assist.

Money $chool

Understand the impact of one’s credit score, banking basics, how to manage 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

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.

Stay connected as we alleviate poverty, distress and injustice one person at a time.
