Our Vision

Two Penny Missions seeks to partner with the community of Northeast Louisiana to help individuals meet immediate needs, while opening a relationship with the Church to introduce Jesus Christ to the lost.

Two Penny Missions will be the hands and feet of Jesus to our community by building servant relationships and demonstrating kindness and love that reflects a relationship with Jesus Christ.

"While Jesus was in the Temple, he watched the rich people dropping their gifts in the collection box. Then a poor widow came by and dropped in two small coins. "I tell you the truth", Jesus said, "this poor widow has given more than all of the rest of them. For they have given a tiny part of their surplus, but she, poor as she is, has given everything she has"."


Luke 21:1-4

THE TWO PENNY STORY

Arimathea Trace

short-term transition to self sufficiency

Arimathea Trace was built in 2017. The property consists of two cabins with two twin beds in each, a family cabin with three sets of bunk beds, a cleaning cabin with a laundry area, men’s full bathroom and a women’s full bathroom. The Gathering Place is a dinning cabin set up for our tenants to enjoy a meal together. Our main office is also on the property, along with a gazebo for our guests to enjoy the outdoors. We have an on-site manager who resides on the property. Arimathea Trace is located at 221 Lilac Street in West Monroe, LA.

Qualified applicants must have, or obtain while staying with us, at least their General Education Diploma (GED), an updated ID, and clear a background check. Tenants will also be required to take a Covid test and show a negative result. Tenants must be capable and willing to work full time, during their entire stay at the shelter. The shelter will act as a short-term transitional house while the tenants move forward to becoming self sufficient members of this community.
