40 Years of Serving Basic Human Needs
The Disch-DeClouet Social Service Center, a non-profit organization, serves the poor and needy of Iberia Parish with immediate assistance for critical and basic human needs.
The assistance is provided without a waiting period and without charge. Our mission includes treating all clients with dignity, respect, and cheerfulness; counseling them on personal and financial issues; encouraging them in their illnesses, grief, and other troubles; and praying with them.
“I was hungry and you fed me;
Thirsty and you gave me drink
I was a stranger and you welcomed me;
Naked and you clothed me.”

Emergency Assistance to the People of Iberia Parish
The Social Service Center has no paid staff and is run by approximately 35 dedicated, permanent volunteers. We also have temporary volunteers, such as seminarians, who work at the center to get some small idea of the scope of poverty and the problems of the poor in Iberia Parish and how the Social Service Center addresses this.
Our funding sources are:
- Individual donations 62%
- Churches 16%
- United Way 16%
- Other 6%
