Provide a summary of the project or program:
           Calcasieu Parish Voluntary Council on the Aging, has been in it's current Administrative Building in Lake Charles, LA for 33 years. Since that time, the agency has grown tremendously and added services to meet the growing demands of the senior population in SWLA. Due to the constant financial challenges that the agency has faced as a non-profit organization over the years, no major repairs or upgrades have been made to the building. In 2005, Hurricane Rita blew through SWLA and the building took a hard hit. Insurance proceeds were received, but were inadequate to properly repair the major damage that the building sustained. The agency has struggled and spent approximately $175,000 on replacing the roof to eliminate further damage and totally renovated the plumbing, electrical and structure of the Bingo hall Bathrooms. The building is still in need of major structural, exterior and interior repairs to preserve the life of the building. An estimate to make all the necessary repairs, is an approximate $250,000. All funding will go directly towards repairing and preserving the life of the building.
