HOPE Connections' Vision and Mission

HOPE Connections

Agencies working together to prevent and end homelessness in Northwest Louisiana

HOPE Connections has been incorporated as a 501c3 Non-profit organization since 2001. It is governed by a 21 member agency Board of Directors and a 20 member homeless system Board of Directors. HOPE was started in the early 1990s as HOPE for the Homeless by dedicated community volunteers who saw the need to create a system of solutions for those experiencing homelessness.

2018 NWLA CoC Board of Directors

governs the Homeless System

This Board meets the 2nd Wednesday of the month

in the  HOPE Connections Conference Room.

The Vision of HOPE Connections is that no individual or family has to experience homelessness in Northwest Louisiana.

To bring that vision into reality, HOPE’s mission is to guide and foster a comprehensive, coordinated homeless services system for those at risk of or experiencing homelessness grounded in rich collaboration and engaging the passion of the community.
