Catholic Services - The Emily House
In March 2018, Catholic Services of Acadiana proudly opened the doors to The Emily House, a new emergency shelter for homeless women and children. Located in Lafayette, The Emily House represents CSA's most recent endeavor to respond to women experiencing homelessness in Acadiana. In continuance with adopting national best practices in addressing homelessness, The Emily House will focus on ensuring that experiences of homelessness are rare and brief. The shelter services will be focused on rapidly returning families to permanent housing, with a goal of stabilization through intensive and personalized case management services continuing after housing placement.
