A Shreveport charity that serves thousands of hot meals a year in the Ledbetter Heights neighborhood is moving two miles away where it will join 12 nonprofits to provide services to homeless people.

Christian Service’s Hospitality House was founded in 1970. The agency is raising $500,000 to convert a warehouse into a dining facility, according to board president Jane Snyder. She says Christian Service will no longer provide transitional housing, a decision that was carefully considered by its board.
