AmeriCorps VISTA

Today, about 46 million Americans live in poverty. Through AmeriCorps VISTA, you can make a tangible difference in Tangipahoa. And, you’ll find the fulfillment that comes from using your knowledge and skills to help those in disadvantaged circumstances turn their dreams into reality. To get started, contact Lisa Lee. 

Homelessness Prevention

CCDBR helps families through everyday crises. Too many families live one paycheck away from homelessness. CCDBR serving Tangipahoa has very limited resources to help families in danger of homeless with rent and utilities. Help us help more people by donating to CCDBR here and designate you gift to "Tangipahoa Services."
