Christian Outreach Center

The Christian Outreach Center of Baton Rouge is a Christ-centered homeless prevention ministry helping people toward self-sufficiency in Downtown Baton Rouge. We are supported by our Downtown Member Churches: First Baptist Church, First Presbyterian Church, First United Methodist Church, and St Joseph Cathedral. We are powered by our thrift store chain, The Purple Cow - Your Thrifty Boutique, with two locations: - 6586 Jones Creek Road (near Tiger Bend) - 3651 Perkins Road (near Acadian) Donations and purchases at our stores fund what we do at The Christian Outreach Center. We also have a ministry called COTES. COTES stands for Christian Outreach Transitional Employment Services. This is a Day Labor service seeking to bridge the gap between unemployment and full-time work. We seek out job opportunities and transport our employees to and from the job site. Our employees come primarily from local halfway houses to ensure that they show up "on time and in a right frame of mind."
