Shelter Plus Care provides tenant based housing subsidies for homeless disabled individuals and families in the parishes of Lafayette and St. Landry. The program is designed to be the final stage of the homeless continuum of care for a population that is traditionally hard to house. Lafayette Catholic Service Centers (LCSC) is in partnership with Volunteers of America (VOA) to administer this program in Acadiana. LCSC administers rental and deposit assistance and VOA provides supportive services to participants of the program for as long as they are eligible for both components.
Participants are given the opportunity to become independent and self-sufficient through this service of affordable housing and assistance.
