Micah 6:8 Mission

Sulphur, Louisiana

Actions speak louder than words, and Micah 6:8 Mission in Sulphur, LA never loses sight of their guiding principle: to do justice for the health and well-being of their community from hearts of mercy and compassion. The non-profit was founded in 2018 to alleviate food insecurity for the unhoused. Yet, after seven federally declared disasters in two years, they now address multiple issues, including climate change, homelessness, lack of equitable disaster mitigation and relief, and unsafe drinking water. Environmental activist Erin Brockovich likened the water situation there to that in Flint, Michigan. Ongoing projects include training on storm-resilient rebuilding, installations of community-wide filtered water stations, an environmental education program with Georgia State University, a community radio station, and resident engagement programs on environmental and public health issues. 

Cindy Robertson created the non-profit in 2018 with a humble “blessing box” in the front yard of her home, providing food and toiletries for all who needed it.

Micah 6:8 Mission is a small organization making a big impact. It has a staff of two full-time employees, three board members, and 30 volunteers – all members of frontline communities in Sulphur and Westlake and all dedicated to serving those in need. Over the past five years, the organization has grown to serve members throughout Calcasieu parish, carrying out outreach activities in Lake Charles and Sulphur, as well as in nearby Cameron parish, with their partner organization For A Better Bayou (FABB). Through partnerships with scientific, academic, nonprofit and government partners, M68M seeks to address issues such as food insecurity, emergency preparedness and disaster relief, climate change, air pollution, water pollution, community empowerment, and affordable housing. 

Micah 6:8 Mission partners with the Disaster Justice Network, which offers resources such as storm-resilient rebuilding tutorials and hands-on resilient rebuilding demonstrations at the Evergreen Missionary Baptist Church in DeQuincy.
