HOPE Connections Capital Campaign

HOPE CONNECTIONS

A collaborative project led by Hope for the Homeless located at 2350 Levy Street, Shreveport LA, 71103



HOPE CONNECTIONS has a simple mission: To end homelessness in Northwest Louisiana.

It’s a fact: No one likes homelessness, yet everyone is affected by it—even you.

  • It costs taxpayers between $50,000-$75,000 per year for every homeless man, woman or child who lives on the streets when you factor expenses related to police enforcement and jail time, health-related costs like ambulance trips to the ER and extended hospitalizations, institutional care and social services, damage to public and private property, and even the constant clean-up of homeless areas.
  • Investors are reluctant to purchase property or start businesses in areas populated by homeless people.
  • The perception of danger associated with a visible homeless population deters tourists and potential customers from frequenting areas around downtown and the casinos.
  • A large homeless population gives outsiders as well as our children the impression that the larger Shreveport/Bossier community doesn’t care about our less fortunate citizens.

So whatever the motivation—business, personal, societal, religious—each of us has an incentive to end homelessness. It’s not just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do.

To achieve this once unimaginable goal, Shreveport’s HOPE for the Homeless coalition of agencies has launched an exciting, cutting-edge plan that addresses the needs of our most vulnerable citizens in radically new ways that have proven successful in cities just like ours.So whatever the motivation—business, personal, societal, religious—each of us has an incentive to end homelessness. It’s not just the right thing to do—it’s the smart thing to do.
