About the Nash House

The late Mr. Robert Nash was a dedicated volunteer for Family Promise of Acadiana for 18 years. Through a generous bequest from Mr. Nash, combined with additional private loan financing, we were able to purchase this building near downtown Lafayette, and have named it in his honor. As the new home for our organization and the families we serve, it will provide more space and better functionality, enabling us to increase the number of families we can help and improve our community outreach.

The facility is in need of improvements to meet current building code standards and to provide the optimal setting for our program services for years to come. This capital campaign aims to raise $500,000 to meet our loan obligation, make the necessary renovations and equip the house.
