Jody Broussard, Jimmy Mauricio and Peter Broussard donate money raised from a poboy fundraiser hosted by Wolf Pack to benefit the Outreach Center.

The Wolf Pack is a charitable organization started by Mr. Mauricio originally as a Mardi Gras Club for a few of the workers at QCP (Quality Construction & Production, LLC) several years ago.  After organizing the group, he felt the members could benefit by providing community service activities in addition to the club’s Mardi Gras’ activities.

The Ascension Episcopal School student council hosted a clothes drive that collected more than 1,200 pounds of clothes to benefit the Outreach Center.

  Acadiana Outreach recently received gifts and a check from PetroQuest Energy to help with the annual 'Christmas for Kids' program. Several employees of PetroQuest Energy gathered with Sandi Degeyter (Acadiana Outreach) and they are from left to right: Bond Clement, Sr. VP, CAO, Matt Clark, Lauren Stephens, Sandi, Todd Zehnder, Exec.

Special thanks to C'est Toi for donating their time and talents to our Lighthouse Women and Children's Shelter and Naomi House clients. C'est Toi generously donated a personal, one-on-one wardrobe consultation in addition to one outfit to use for job interviews, special occasions, etc. The shopping spree made each woman look good as well as feel good about themselves.

Special thanks to The Zonta Club of Lafayette for adopting our Naomi House as their special project for the month of February. Part of their adoption of the Naomi House includes the donation of toiletries and personal items. The Zonta Club is an organization that consists of professionals in business who promote the improvement of the status of women throughout the world.

Special thanks to the ExamOne staff for collecting food items to feed the families of our Lighthouse Women’s & Children’s Shelter.  Last year the Lighthouse provided 32 families with emergency shelter.  The Outreach Center walks hand in hand with the shelter residents guiding them to self-sufficiency by helping them access safe housing, employment and optimal mental & physical health.

Brothers on the Boulevard has made a generous in-kind donation of coats and suits to be distributed to those in need through the Outreach Center’s “Well- Mart,” which supplies clothing and non-perishable food items to individuals who lack basic essentials including food, clothing and shelter.


The Outreach Center was fortunate to have the St. Pius 3rd grade Brownie Troop 377 stop by with items they collected from their homes to learn about the importance of recylcing goods to help the enviornment. Troop 377, pictured above, stopped by our Well-Mart where Ms. Adele, the Well-Mart & Closet manager, spoke with them about the intake process of the donations the Outreach Center receives. Once they learned the process of items we intake they unpacked the itmes they brought and saved them in the Well-Mart in order to earn a badge for their troop.

The AT&T Telecom Pioneers Life Members took part in "Make A Difference Day" by delivering several bags of clothes, shoes, coats, toilet tissue and paper towels to Acadiana Outreach.  By cleaning out our closets, we not only help our selves by making room in our homes but these items (in good condition) are distributed to the needy by Acadiana Outreach.


Thank you! 

Special thanks to 97.3 the DAWG and everyone who donated toys to help give less fortuante children have a happy Christmas. Because of your gracious hearts the children served at our Christmas Dinner each received a special toy to fill their Christmas morning with cheer.

97.3 The Dawg & the Outreach Center joined together to provide presents for those children in need this holiday season.


A few heart-felt words from a single mother with four children who moved from the Lighthouse Women & Children’s shelter into their own home and a grandmother caring for her grandchildren…

“Because of this toy drive my children will have a happy Christmas.  It means they will have toys to play with…toys that I can’t give them right now.  It’s truly a blessing.”

“I will never be able to thank you enough for allowing my grandchildren to have a happy Christmas.”
