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 nineteen 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.
