A Night of Hope

Domestic violence is an epidemic in our country and right here in Acadiana. Every day hundreds of women in Acadiana are abused. Faith House is a shelter in Lafayette which provides housing, food, toiletries, guidance in finding jobs and new housing, uniforms and school supplies for school children, classes on managing stress, safety, job hunting, legal counseling, and basic health care, and the numerous activities which are a part of a normal life. Faith House, our one shelter in Lafayette, is outstanding but cannot manage the numbers and must deny admission to approximately seven hundred women each year. The need for assistance with housing and food is a major budget item for the survivors of domestic violence. We are asking for your valuable aid through your contributions which will be used for funding a new shelter.

A Night of Hope Benefitting Survivors of Domestic Violence will be held on October 27, 2023, at Warehouse 535 from 7:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. All funds raised will benefit survivors of domestic violence by assisting with shelter and eventually apotentially new shelter to be constructed in the next few yearswith assistance from this event funds.

Adopt A Family

The Holidays are often a difficult time for the families who have come to Faith House.  Their lives have been dramatically changed as they escape their abusers and with those changes, often loneliness, homelessness and a lack of resources make it difficult for families to celebrate the Holidays.

“However, our community continues to reach out to these families who are building lives free of violence.  The generosity of the Acadiana community last year provided gifts to more than 100 families during the Holiday Season, along with your help again this year; we can bring bright and cheerful Holidays to all the families who need our support through the season.

You can adopt a family this holiday season by filling out this form:

Planned Giving

Planned Giving is a great way to support Faith House and survivors of domestic violence in the future.

You do need not be wealthy to leave a legacy. Planned giving can be as simple as including a bequest provision in your will or naming Faith House as a beneficiary of your life insurance policy/retirement plan. Regardless of the amount, your gift will make a vital difference in the lives of survivors of domestic violence.

Purple Light Project

We’re here to introduce: The Purple Light Project! This October in recognition of
Domestic Violence Awareness month Faith House is launching the Purple Light
Project to shed light on the issue of domestic violence in our community.  Help us to illuminate the night and show support for survivors of abuse.

What is the Purple Light Project? The Purple Light Project is a campaign focused on reminding our community that not every home is a safe place and
allows members of our community to join the movement of HOPE for an end to
domestic violence.

Joining is easy, all you have to do is replace your porch light
with a purple bulb. Purple is a symbol of peace, courage, survival, honor, and
dedication to ending violence. Become a part of this growing movement today!

How can I get a purple bulb? When you make a donation of $10 or more to Faith
House you will receive a complimentary purple light to display during the month of
October. Donations can be made online at or by mail.

What if my business wishes to participate? This is a fabulous way for businesses to become more involved in our community and show your support for domestic violence survivors. Please contact for
more information about business involvement.

When a community moves, change can be made. Become a part of the
movement to end violence in the home. Get your light today and help Faith House
shine a light on domestic violence.
