A page for our Leaders in Thibodaux
A Brief History
The BISCO Thibodaux group has been active in the community since the mid 1990's. Our Leaders come from various faiths and denominations and represent citizens in their communities.
BISCO meetings are usually held on the third Monday of each month, with changes to accomodate holidays.
Ever since the hurricanes of 2005 and 2007, the Thibodaux group has been working on various hurricane-related issues, especially housing. Many of our Leaders have been directly affected by these storms and work to address the lack of affordable housing in the area.
Coastal Land Loss has also been one of our leading issues and this was before the storms of the last five years and the oil disaster of last year.
Home Owners Insurance has become a very involved issue as we began to work on a tri state level with associates from Missippi and Alabama.
Poverty, and Homelessness continue to exist in our communities and is an issue close to our hearts.
The BISCO Jr. group addresses issues of Youth Development.
Oil Disaster: assisting families affected by the oil spill has taken up much of our time over the last year. It continues to be an issue that many families are dealing with on a daily basis.
Another issue the Thibodaux BISCO Group has been working on is Hunger/Homelessness and Poverty. A coalition with other nonprofits has been formed and meeting to come up with strategies for addressing these issues in the City. If anyone is interested in these issues, please call the BISCO Office at 985-227-9042.
