Residents and staff of the Holy Angels Residential Facility in Shreveport were thrilled to receive a $50,000 grant from the AEP Foundation in support of AngelWorks Enterprises.

AngelWorks offers day program services for current Holy Angels residential clients and for individuals with disabilities who live in the Shreveport-Bossier City area who are at least 18 years of age. The program is comprised of five social enterprises: Creative Arts (jewelry, pottery, sewing, and painting), Culinary Arts (cookies and lasagna), Horticulture, Business Services (collating and shredding), and Holy Rhino Coffee (grinding and packaging).

“Thanks to this generous gift from the AEP Foundation, Holy Angels can fulfill our mission to provide our residents and program participants a path to self-fulfillment through education, empowerment, spirituality, independence and work,” said Laurie Boswell, CEO of Holy Angels.

Eighty-four cents of every dollar raised through the sales of AngelWorks products directly benefits those the program serves.
