The Louisiana Center Against Poverty, (LACAP) is a rural economic, community based, and human development nonprofit organization established in 1997. Our goals are to develop and implement projects and programs to address the academic, social, environmental, emotional and recreation problems in an effort to help alleviate some of the frustration and anguish associated with severe poverty in the northern parishes of Louisiana.

The Center is situated in the heart of Lake Providence, Louisiana, "The poorest place in America" (Time Magazine 1994 and Washington Post 2004).

The business office is located in Monroe Louisiana.

LACAP is governed by a Board of Directors consisting of seven members. The Executive Director, Carolyn D. Hunt is responsible for the management, personnel, staff, reporting, implementation and operation of the day to day activities of the center.

From youth development and health to housing and jobs, The Louisiana Center Against Poverty programs are far reaching and life changing!

The Key Initiatives to address the problems associated with poverty are:

Economic Development
Youth and Teen Programs
Elderly programs
Helping Hands Projects
Life Skills Training
Drug and Violence Prevention
