To Give You Some Perspective

Evergreen’s history with the Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) and its current relationships with churches of all denominations are important! In 1959, the ministry of Evergreen began with the vision of few faithful parents, pastors, and elders in the Presbyterian Synod of Louisiana. Over fifty years ago, the Synod was looking for a new outlet through which to express the faith and compassion of its members. Today, many churches have come on-board to support the vision of Evergreen.

The faith community has supported Evergreen’s vision by joining together to serve, provide for, and champion individuals with disabilities. Evergreen is equally committed to helping the faith community reach out and embrace this special and unique group of people. Evergreen is also committed to supporting clients as they express their individual spirituality through involvement with the faith community of their choice.
