God's Word says "Where there is no vision, the people perish."  Proverbs 29:18.  God tells us to dream big and we are not to limit what He can do. 

With that in mind, our dream is to have a furniture bank where we can have furniture, household items and everything needed to make a place a home.  We would like to be able to meet with a person or family who have been brought across our path to determine their needs and then invite them to come to our place and pick out the items they need.  We would like to be able to have drivers go pick the person or family up if they have no transportation.  This way, they can be part of picking out their furnishings, giving them the freedom to choose their items and giving them the dignity they deserve despite their circumstances .  We can show them the love and respect they deserve even through the hard times they may be going through.  Plus, it will be fun for them to be able to choose their furnishings and household items.  Of course, if they are unable to come to the furniture bank, we will be glad to choose for them and deliver it to them.

Additionally, we will also have a clothing "boutique" for people to pick out any clothing, shoes or accessories that they may need.  There will also be a food pantry for anyone in need of food items.

We will continue having our monthly feeding outreaches to the homeless in New Orleans and the surrounding areas (St. Tammany and Tangipahoa Parishes).
