The Washington Parish Coalition on Human Services (WPCHS) held its July meeting at the ADAPT Office in Bogalusa.

Myra N. Magee, director of Pride and Hope Ministry, was the guest speaker. Pride and Hope Ministry is a licensed Home and Community Based Service in the state of Louisiana and the state of Mississippi. Pride and Hope Ministry plays a critical role in caring for seniors and bringing peace of mind to families in need of care for their loved ones.
The long-term costs for non-acute care with a Home and Community Based Service such as Pride and Hope Ministry is typically much lower than living in a nursing home full-time. Pride and Hope Ministry also operates a fully licensed Type 3 Day Care facility in Angie. The day care is open to children from 6 weeks old to 17 years old. Pride and Hope employs 120 employees.
