Chamber Luncheon Focuses on Cenla Homeless Coalition

chamberlunchThe Chambers’ monthly strategic luncheon was held at Convention Hall today.

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.
