Why We're Here
"The Harvest is Plentiful, but the Laborers Are Few" Matthew 9:37
The Christian Outreach Center of Baton Rouge exists to create self-sufficiency and restored dignity through employment. Many men and women in our city find themselves trapped in cycles of poverty, substance abuse, crime, hunger, and homelessness. But It doesn’t have to be this way.
The Christian Outreach Center
The work of the Christian Outreach Center is designed to meet each individual in their need, regardless of their circumstance, and to move them towards self-sufficiency.
From essential services, to innovative coursework, all the way to employment case management, the COC provides programming to help any individual regardless of their background or history.
Each of our services is designed to move someone one-step closer to self-sufficiency and restored dignity.
