The Opelousas Lighthouse Mission is an emergency and transitional shelter for homeless men.
OLM can comfortably accommodate 32 men a night and is open seven days a week three hundred sixty-five days a year.
OLM provides food, clothing, and assistance with medical and transportation expenses.
Men who seek assistance at OLM are expected to help with cleaning, gardening, lawn care and cooking according to the capabilities of each man.
They operate a vegetable garden year-round which is overseen by OLM with important assistance from Southern University.
Their work programs help men gain work skills, build self- esteem and learn teamwork.
As a result of this experience, they believe their men will be better prepared to gain employment once they leave the mission.
