The board, lead by a very tearful President, bid a fond farewell to Kendra Gauthier as they wished her well in her 'New Chapter'. Kendra has been an amazing Executive Director, was instrumental in opening the CLHC Virginia Soprano Resource Center and has dedicated the past 10 years of her life to fighting homelessness in Cenla. She is a go-getter and will succeed wherever the road takes her. They didn't bid farewell...just 'see you later', as the CLHC will be calling on Kendra's skills, passion and hopefully will be recruiting her as board member in the future!

Find your next great career opportunity at Central Louisiana Homeless Coalition

06/02/2019

Dear friends of CLHC,
I want to personally thank you all for your support and dedication to the Central Louisiana Homeless Coalition throughout my tenure as Executive Director. When I began this work nearly 10 years ago, I had no idea the journey ahead would be filled with so many incredible blessings and lifelong friendships. The Central Louisiana community has been so supportive of my work while at CLHC that it makes this announcement a very difficult one.

It is with both sadness and excitement that I announce my departure from CLHC. I am sad to say goodbye to the many amazing people I've met over the years, but excited to begin my new chapter and new career. The Board, staff, and I have prepared for this change for several months and I have no doubt that the organization will continue to be THE leader in homelessness services in Central Louisiana. Be on the lookout for a post announcing the new Director very soon. And be sure to send a warm welcome to the incoming leadership!

Sincerely,
Kendra G.

Last night, during the Alexandria Senior High School, Marine Corps JROTC awards night ceremony, Col. Martin awarded six MCJROTC cadets with a very special certificate, ‘The Department of Veterans Affairs Certificate.’ These future leaders spent time volunteering with homeless Veterans at the VA hospital.

We just happened to be attending the awards ceremony as parents, and had the privilege to hear about such amazing acts of kindness from our local students. Thank you Col. Martin, Alexandria Senior High School and MCJROTC for instilling love of country, community and veterans. Cenla is a better place because of you!

This is love. This is Alexandria. ❤️
Thank you to Alicia McGlothlin, NP for setting up a weekly clinic at our homeless resource center.

Access to affordable, quality health care is also essential in the fight to end homelessness. #BeTheChange

Poor health is both a cause and a result of homelessness. Homeless persons also suffer from multiple health problems at a much higher rate than the general population due to increased exposure to the elements, disease, violence, unsanitary conditions, malnutrition, stress, and other issues.

3 cities in the U.S. have ended chronic homelessness: Here’s how they did it

Looking for a glimpse into what we do, and how we manage our homelessness system? This article tells it all! We've implemented the same nationally-recognized model for Central Louisiana, and we're close to ending homelessness among our veterans.

Nine more have ended veteran homelessness. It’s part of a national program called Built for Zero that uses a data-based approach to help officials figure out exactly who needs what services. Now it’s launching in 50 more cities.
