North Louisiana Interfaith Leverages $500,000 for Caddo Parish Community Lighthouse

North Louisiana Interfaith leaders erupted in applause as the Caddo Commission voted 8 to 4 to approve seed funding for two Community Lighthouse pilot locations. These Community Lighthouses will serve as beacons of hope during crises, immediately assessing the needs of the community and providing vital assistance to area residents. Among the services offered are cooling and heating stations, charging stations, food distribution, ice, water, and other supplies and services.

"The approval of seed funding for the Community Lighthouse project is a significant milestone for our community," said Pastor Theron Jackson, a clergy leader with North Louisiana Interfaith. "This is an example of what’s possible when everyday people come together and work with government to achieve something for the greater good. Community Lighthouses will not only provide essential services but also foster a sense of unity and resilience within our neighborhoods."
