GULF COAST SOCIAL SERVICES

ABOUT US

Our Story

In 1983, Gulf Coast Social Services was formed to serve the most vulnerable people in South and Central Louisiana. For more than 35 years, that’s what we’ve done, improving and changing lives in the communities we call home.

Our family of experienced, compassionate service providers is the heartbeat of our state-licensed, non-profit organization. We’ve never lost sight of our commitment to providing the highest quality in-home care for those who need us most.

Every person we serve gets individualized care. Because our motto, “Personal Care, Quality Outcomes,” isn’t just a slogan. It’s a way of life.

About Us

Our Vision

We are dedicated to providing the people we serve with individualized care, enabling them to live as independently as possible in their communities.

Our Mission

We empower people with mental, physical, behavioral, and other challenges to improve the quality of their lives and to live as independently as possible in the community.

Our Values

A few core values guide our actions every day.

We believe in:
  • Teaching consumers to maximize their strengths and minimize their weaknesses
  • Empowering those we serve to expand their choices by providing new experiences
  • Helping people in the present while equipping them for the future
  • Recognizing everyone’s ability to be taught and to serve as teachers for others
  • Advocating for the underserved
  • Treating our employees and the people we serve with dignity and respect
  • Creating an environment that values employee contributions and promotes their development
  • Maintaining uncompromising ethical standards
  • Exercising fiscal responsibility to our consumers, funders, and the community
That simple set of beliefs sets us apart. It helps us constantly strive to be the leading social services agency in your community by providing innovative and individualized care.

We want to make a positive difference in the lives of the people we serve and their families, not just today but for generations to come.
