I'd like to invite you to join the Outreach Center on Thursday, November 14th for Palates and Pate'. Palates and Pate' is a feast for all senses including amazing food, art, and entertainment all to benefit The Outreach Center for Women and Children. This event is critical in helping us provide vital services for the poor and homeless women and children in Lafayette.
In the past year we:

· 73% of our residents moved into permanent housing
· 70% were victims of domestic violence or sexual assault
· 34% had a physical or mental illness
· 31% had a substance abuse addiction
· 37% have not completed high school and have no true marketable skills.
The Outreach Center provides critical recovery services to assist our families become self-sufficient, contributing members of our community. We provide job coaching to help increase their employability and wages, we offer financial assistance to breakdown the barrier of rental and utilitiy deposits, provide budgeting and relapse prevention to give them the tools they need to remain self-sufficient, and individual and group counseling services to address the reasons they became homeless in the first place.
We ask for your partnership, so we can continue to provide critical services to overcome some of these very real challenges mothers and children are facing right now, right here in Lafayette. I hope you can join us in the fight. Thank you!
