Project Geaux Bags

Our Mission: Project Geaux Bags aims to change the way kids enter foster care and to make that first night in foster care a little bit easier for everyone. Children come into foster care in all ages and sizes, and all hours of the day and night. They usually come with only the clothes on their back.

What’s in a Geaux Bag?

Geaux Bags are filled with essential clothing, toiletries and a comfort item to make that first night easier for everyone. These bags help both child and foster parent during the emergency transition by having the necessities and comfort items on hand.

Project Just Be-Clause

Just Be-Clause was started to provide Christmas presents for teens from the ages of 13 to 18 who have been identified as in crisis by school resource officers in Caddo and Bossier Parish schools.

With most Christmas present drives catering to the younger children,  we found a need for these children to also experience the holiday season. That is why we decided to help “Just Be-Clause.”
