Catholic Charities Ready To Help Again
Catholic Charities of Acadiana will be ready once again tonight to help anyone needing shelter. They do this every night of the year.
With temperatures continuing to plummet, the shelter will be open again, the same way it has been open since March of last year.
Chief Communications Officer for Catholic Charities of Acadaian Ben Broussard says,
Every night that someone is forced to sleep on the street is an emergency. It's nghts with below freezing temperatures that often have us think about those who are experiencing homelessness and what our response should be. Fact is, it is dangerous for anyone to sleep on the street on any night. With that in mind, Catholic Charities offers shelter 365 days per year to anyone who is in need.
Broussard says their other shelter, St. Joseph Shelter for Men, has been operating at a deficit of $300,000. and they remind everyone that you can always donate to Catholic Charities of Acadiana.
