Community Lighthouse Project — Caddo Parish Commission Meeting (8 June 2023)

Next Thursday (8 June 2023) at 3:30 PM, the Caddo Parish Commission will hold their regular meeting at Government Plaza in Shreveport, Louisiana.

North Louisiana Interfaith has asked the Caddo Parish Commission for $500,000 of seed funding to open two pilot locations of the Community Lighthouse Project.

Community Lighthouses are solar-powered resilience hubs where people can get warm (in winter), get cool (in summer), get water, and charge their phones and other devices when storms or ice have caused widespread power outages.

The Lighthouses will also be supported by a volunteer base of people who have learned the neighborhood and know where the needs are so portable batteries can be distributed where needed for medical devices.

There are two locations up and running already in New Orleans and here is a short video about their project:
