Welcome House seeks sponsors,donors to meet maintenance needs

The Welcome House, located on La. 13 north of Crowley, depends on the generosity of the community for its existence.
The faith-based shelter for the less fortunate does not receive state or federal funding, yet people from across the state — indeed, across the country — have sought refuge there and continue to do so.
The facility received a much-needed overhaul a few years ago courtesy of the Rotary Club of Crowley and it’s Community Outreach Corp. However, the cost of maintaining the facility is taking its toll.
