About HOPE Connections
HOPE Connections serves two very important roles in
the system of homeless services in Northwest Louisiana.
HOPE connects the agencies and organizations providing an array of needed housing and services to those experiencing homelessness. We do this by serving as the lead agency of the homeless system or Continuum of Care (CoC), which we refer to as the Homeless Coalition.
HOPE also connects those experiencing homelessness to the amazing agencies and organizations providing the housing and services they so desperately need.
We do this by providing services directly to those experiencing homelessness
that serve as the front door to the homeless system.
We believe that most people do not choose homelessness if they are aware of the help available.
Homelessness is a circumstance created by:
Life events beyond a person's control
Complex issues such as domestic violence, chronic health conditions, severe mental illness, addiction, physical limitations, and developmental limitations
