Ending Homelessness in Acadiana.
One home, one person, one family, at a time.

ARCH is a regional coalition
covering eight parishes of Louisiana:
Acadia, Evangeline, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Landry, St. Martin, St. Mary, and Vermilion.

Our mission is to ensure that everyone in Acadiana has access to safe, affordable, stable housing
and that all episodes of homelessness are rare, brief, and non-recurring.


ARCH is guided by OPENING DOORS, the Federal strategic plan to prevent and end homelessness
and MA MAISON, the Louisiana State plan to end homelessness.

ARCH usually meets every other month on the fourth Thursday at 1 PM at Acadiana CARES
