Freedom World Ministries helping homeless off the street in cold weather

Posted: Updated:
LAFAYETTE, La. -

Freedom World Ministries, under the leadership of Pastor Lawrence Levy III, is helping homeless people off the streets and out of the cold.

Levy said he saw a need and wanted to answer the call. He and members of his church are working together to provide nearly thirty homeless men and women with warm hotel rooms, food and clothing.

"Basically, what I'm doing is as many as I can get off the streets, in this cold rainy weather, you know, these homeless people. We are literally trying to aid them as best we can with what we have, but we are limited," Levy said.

The pastor is now asking the Lafayette community for their help with donations. The individuals have somewhere warm to stay, but are in need of food, clothing, toiletries and more. 

Some people he has helped said they have been homeless and on the streets for a long time and are appreciative of him taking action and getting them out of the cold. 

"This could be your son, your daughter, your husband, your wife. Just because they are homeless, I don't think we should overlook them," Levy said.

If you would like to donate, you can take donations directly to the Motel 6 on University Avenue in Lafayette. You can also contact Levy at 678-799-5712.
