|Overview of Programs|
Our services restore individuals' dignity by teaching them employable skills, communication skills, coping skills & life skills, in an effort to help them rebuild their lives to self-sufficiency and for more than twenty years the Acadiana Outreach Center has served the Acadiana region by providing poor and homeless citizens with critical services that are not a “hand-out” but rather a “hand-up” designed to empower from fear, despair, and hopelessness to a future with possibilities.
We Provide a Full Continuum of Care:
• Basic Services: emergency and transitional shelter for women.
• Substance Abuse Treatment: Intensive Outpatient, Outpatient, Individual and familiy sessions, and Job Skills training for poor and homeless women with or without co-occuring diagnoses.
• Case Management: Comprehensively assessing all clients’ needs, developing an action plan, helping families access housing, employment, and existing government, church, & nonprofit services, then providing unmet needs funding to fill gaps once other options are exhausted.
