Assisi House, Inc. is a 501c3 organization committed to meeting the needs of those susceptible to homelessness, poor health outcomes, and chronic poverty. Our name is based on the notion of service and goodwill put forth in the prayer for peace attributed to St. Francis of Assisi. Though we are not a religious organization, we do seek to bring about empowerment, love, peace, truth, hope, light and joy to the vulnerable in our Baton Rouge community.



“Lord, make me an instrument of your peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is discord, union; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy”

What We Do

Assisi House engages with and listens to communities in the Baton Rouge area to guide our research into finding solutions and giving relief to the needs of each. We work with the residents of our capital city to improve the lives and health of the most vulnerable in our communities.
