Working with People to Discover Their Purpose
The Christian Outreach Center of Baton Rouge exists to create self-sufficiency and restored dignity through employment. Many men and women in our city find themselves in cycles of poverty, substance abuse, crime, hunger and homelessness. It doesn’t have to be this way. Addressing the bigger picture of a lack of education and job preparedness can change lives.
Our city will never heal if we don’t do it together. Generations of homelessness are too big of a job to tackle on our own. We need partners in every circle of Baton Rouge to work together. How many people in your circle are working toward reducing homelessness? The COC needs you on board as an advocate and investor.
An amount as low as $5 helps us to meet critical basic needs. While a breakfast may seem like a fleeting service, a full belly is necessary for the mental and emotional work that has to take place to become job-ready and self-sufficient. Your gift, no matter the size, is making a difference.
Our services cannot grow without you. The need is greater than the current services we provide. This year we are working toward expanding our team for more feet on the ground, adding a new “hand-up” service for prisoner re-entry, restructuring current services to be even more effective, adding 2 new employment training sites, and MORE. Every gift is a step toward making these goals a reality.
