Disch-DeClouet Social Service Center
The Disch-DeClouet Social Service Center has provided assistance to poor and needy individuals and families of Iberia Parish for 42 years. We help with utilities, rent, food, clothing (including coats, school uniforms and work clothing), diapers, medicine, medical and dental bills, school supplies, emergency shelter and other basic human needs. We provide counseling on reducing expenses (such as energy saving tips); increasing income (such as training referrals, job seeking information and adult education information); and healthy living. We try to provide a safety net for families who often have no ability to save for emergencies, such as car or home repairs; medical expenses; medical problems resulting in missing work; cutback in hours, or weather related spikes in utility bills. In 2017 we provided 65 tons of food to hungry families; utility and housing assistance over 5000 times; and clothing over 1000 times.
