About Us

9.04.17 Encounter  – Established at LSU in 2017 –

Encounter was founded by the guiding belief that Louisiana’s homeless deserve love, compassion, respect, and dignity.  We believe individuals should not be defined or valued by circumstances that lead to homelessness.  United by humanity, the members of Encounter strive to raise awareness for those without a home, to serve our neighbors in times of need, and to reverse the stereotype that surrounds the homeless community, one encounter at a time.
