Caddo Parish, LA – The Caddo Commission has committed to helping more Caddo Parish citizens in need as challenges have become apparent in the Silver Lake Apartments community.


After discovering that residents were continuing to live in the complex with no water and basic utilities with no means to relocate, the Commission joined with other government agencies and non-profits in the area to offer assistance.


The Parish of Caddo is working with the City of Shreveport’s Office of Community Development to determine needs such as short-term housing and relocation assistance.  In partnership with Hope Connections and Providence House, the Parish is providing funding that will be used to help offset costs for residents in need.


“Helping Caddo Parish citizens in need will always be one of our top priorities,” said Caddo Parish Administrator Erica R. Bryant. “We strongly believe in the power of collaboration, and will continue to work alongside the City and our area agencies to best meet the needs of the citizens of Caddo Parish,” said Bryant.


Residents that have been affected are urged to contact Hope Connections at (318) 670-4591 and the Providence House at (318) 221-7887 for assistance.
