Humanitarian Aid & At-Risk Populations

Humanitarian Aid’s purpose is to save lives, alleviate suffering, and maintain human dignity including natural disaster and crisis response efforts. This also includes organizations providing a safe haven for the homeless, hungry and victims of abuse or neglect.

Featured Projects

Faith House

Multi-year general operating support for abused women & children

The Refinery

Renovations to cafeteria for men’s shelter

“Faith House has always been an organization that is strongly supported by our community. Our partnership with the Stuller Family Foundation has been extremely beneficial as we pursue our mission to save the lives of victims of domestic violence. Without the support of the foundation we would not have been able to open the doors of our transitional housing facility and help families to put their lives back together. Together we are making a difference for victims of violence and as we look to the future I see great success and achievement in our work.”

Billi Lacombe, Executive Director
Faith House, Inc.

Featured Projects

Family Missions Company

Renovations and purchase of new missionary training center

“Our retreat serves as a place where groups arrive, as our Lord encountered them in their woundedness, and seek to heal and reconnect with our core Christian values.

As a result of The Stuller Family Foundation’s generosity, we were able to expand the number of souls reached by almost 1,000 who came through the humble doors of Our Lady of the Bayous. We were able to connect with more local groups to expand our reach and share our Christian message of faith and love. These groups include St. Thomas More, Our Lady of Wisdom, Red Bird Ministries, ACTS retreat, and Rachel’s Vineyard.

In addition to these direct local effects, the foundation’s support allowed for our missionaries to continue serving in the poorest of the poor in 12 different countries as we bring them to an encounter with Jesus.”

Joseph Summers, Director
Faith Missions Company

Though we are grateful for the financial support, it pales in comparison to the real benefit of our partnership with the foundation and its Director…..networking, training and encouragement.”

Environmental Stewardship and Beautification

Environmental stewardship refers to responsible use and protection of the natural environment through conservation and sustainable practices.

Parish Proud wouldn’t exist without The Stuller Family Foundation’s generous contribution and commitment to improving the quality of place across Lafayette Parish. As a direct result of its contributions, Parish Proud was able to establish and grow its flagship programs, “BetterTogetherLFT” and “PickUpLFT”. Both programs are rooted in building the capacity of civic and community organizations in order to enhance and transform the pride we feel into pride we see. Matt Stuller and the foundation are truly good stewards to our community.”
