Organizers focused on the current efforts of the Central Louisiana Homeless Coalition. The Coalition sponsored a capitol campaign to establish a housing resource center to help the homeless population have income, offer a hygiene center, and assist with basic needs like a mailing address and cell phones.
One local business owner shares his story of helping the homeless population.
Organizers say they hope to raise $730k to renovate the resource center. So far, the group has raised nearly $400k of their total goal.
