New fencing in the Baton Rouge area is putting an organization's efforts to help the homeless community in jeopardy.
It Takes a Village has been serving hot meals under the Trevor Sims Bridge near St. Vincent de Paul and North Boulevard for nearly four years, but now fencing has gone up in the area, making it difficult to help those in need.
According to a release from the mayor's office, the city has engaged in numerous homelessness prevention providers since the mayor took office to find solutions to the homeless problem in Baton Rouge, including housing anyone living under that bridge.
Representatives with the organization have reached out to the city to see if the construction can be halted.
