Pastor Leona Benoit

Pastor Leona Benoit

Nominee for 2010 Samaritan of the Year Award

She is the founder of the Potters House, women's shelter, the Lords Place, men's shelter and has recently opened  a home for handicapped and people whom need special attention 24hrs a day.

Pastor Leona has been serving not only Lake Charles for several years but also many years ago would pass out food to homeless people on skid row in Los Angeles, CA.

Pastor Leona's heart has always been to help others before herself, she goes well above and beyond to make sure the homeless have food and shelter and has always devoted her time when anyone has ever needed her.

I believe Pastor Leona Clements Benoit truly deserves the Samaritan award for always helping other and putting the people in need before her own needs.
