Refugee mother from Myanmar holding her baby



Our Refugee Resettlement team needs your help. Refugees from war-torn countries like Colombia, the Congo, and Myanmar are arriving almost daily. They come with little more than the clothes on their backs, and our warehouse is almost empty. 

Help them start their new lives in Baton Rouge.   Donate the household items or furniture listed below. Click here to email Lisa Lee for more info. Or contact Cecilia Weigel to volunteer to help set up an apartment or sign on as a family support volunteer.   Call either at (225)336-8700.
