Representative John Fleming (LA-4)
People of faith work tirelessly behind the scenes to better our communities in Louisiana. One such community organization, a Christian rescue mission, has been serving and loving the hungry, homeless, abused, and addicted for decades. Last year the mission provided over 137,000 meals, over 58,000 nights of lodging, and over 2,600 free medical and dental services to over 700 homeless men, women, and children. Once basic needs are met, each person that comes into the shelter is given the option to enter into a discipleship training program where they receive classes in finance, job readiness, anger management, parenting, addiction recovery, domestic violence support, and Christian Foundation and principles. I am humbled by their heart of service and love for the community.
