The Ville Platte Rotary Club today (Tuesday) heard from Michelle Bergeron, development director at The Refinery, formerly â€œLighthouse Missionâ€� of Opelousas. Bergeron shared a video presentation of the newly constructed menâ€™s shelter on South Street in Opelousas. The facility can house up to 64 men who are homeless, who have no families, just out of prison or rehab and have no place to start over. Bergeron said the home gives men their dignity back, gives them a second chance by feeding, housing and clothing them, educating and helping them find employment. The home is a regimented faith based program where most residents satay an average of 9 months before getting on their own. Funding comes from private sources and public grants. Bergeron was the special guest of Rotarian Nicole Wenger. It was also announced that the Christian and Care Center is running short on food. Care and Share officials are asking for your generosity in making a food donation, monetary donations and donations of frozen food or wildgame. The center has a freezer to store the frozen food. The center helps the poor and needy in the Ville Platte area.
