The Hub: Urban Ministries in Shreveport, LA, is on a mission to give everyone in our city access to a restored life! We do that through providing rescue, relationships, resources, and recovery to the homeless, those experiencing poverty, and women and children who have experienced sexual exploitation and/or human trafficking through our two ministries: The Lovewell Center and Purchased: Not for Sale. The Lovewell Center is a membership-based model of ministry that provides those in poverty and homelessness a way to earn the resources they need through attending classes and counseling. Purchased serves women and children who have experienced human trafficking through multiple programs and outreaches aimed at providing rescue and recovery to every woman and child experiencing exploitation in our city.
Mission groups engage across all of the ministry lanes of The Hub and get hands-on, personal opportunities to engage and serve. This includes homeless outreach, motel outreach, serving meals to those in poverty, and running the resource stores in our ministry facilities. Our mission trips are geared at not only mission activity but training & immersive education so that you can take what you learn back to your own city!
