(Homeless Outreach Providing Essentials)

Hosted by UL Lafayette Department of Nursing

April 29, 2020

9:00am – 1:00pm

Parc Sans Souci

The purpose of this one day outreach is to provide our community’s homeless population with the essentials they need along with free health screenings.

Last year we had over 250 attendees and we were not able to provide all necessities to everyone.

Our goal is to ensure that every attendee is provided the essentials.

We are asking individuals and businesses that are interested in helping us reach our goal either by donation of services, monetary, or items. There is a need for all types of services and items, if unsure of how you can help or have questions, please contact:
