Holy Angels

A nonprofit organization

Holy Angels is an independent nonprofit organization dedicated to providing love, support and empowerment for individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities. We create opportunities through jobs, skills training, education, community integration and social integration that afford the highest level of independence possible for those we serve. Opened in 1965, Holy Angels is one of the nation's premier independent licensed residential training facilities, offering cradle-to-grave services for approximately 185 individuals with intellectual and developmental disabilities.

In 2012, Holy Angels expanded its mission to include a program that serves as a benefit not only to its residents but also to individuals with disabilities from the Northwest Louisiana community who are seeking opportunities for meaningful work. The award-winning AngelWorks Day Program provides participants with work readiness training, job coaching, and job placement through its five enterprises: Business Services, Culinary Arts, Creative Arts, Horticulture, and Holy Rhino Coffee, a partnership with the Shreveport-based company, Rhino Coffee.

Holy Angels provides clients with a path to self-fulfillment through education, empowerment, independence, and work. Some of the special amenities offered at Holy Angels include the Aquatic Center, "GREAT" equine therapy, exercise physiology, Holy Angels Choir, performing arts such as talent shows and Christmas and Easter pageants, Chapel services, and special community outings to the symphony, opera, and local theater.

Holy Angels' AngelCare services include occupational therapy, pet therapy, speech therapy, and applied behavioral analysis. Relaxation and sensory stimulation are offered in a state-of-the-art sensory "SNOEZELEN" room. Services for the community can also be found at the Holy Angels Autism Center where Board Certified Behavior Analysts work one-on-one with clients, providing treatment and support to lead the way for the individual with autism to reach their highest, happiest potential.

For more than 50 years the legacy of Bishop Greco and the Sisters of Our Lady of Sorrows has been sustained through prayer, hard work, love, and visionary leadership. Holy Angels strives to be a sign of hope, love, entrepreneurial innovation, and empowerment to thousands of the nation's most vulnerable individuals and their families, each with a compelling need. The story continues to be written.
