“His Brightest Stars” organization is excited to announce their official status as a Louisiana Registered Nonprofit Corporation– staying true to their mission, that “Everyone deserves to shine.”

 

His Brightest Stars Nonprofit was founded in March 2023 in Galliano, centered around the focus of helping those with special needs in our community. Under the guidance and assistance of Bless Your Heart Nonprofit, located in Larose, the mission of His Brightest Stars began and has now reached official Nonprofit status.


 

Founder and director Jordan Gisclair recently spoke about the mission that drives His Brightest Stars Nonprofit. “I’ve always had a dream to make a positive change in our community and decided to have it become a reality for our special needs individuals. My heart has always been with those with special needs,” Gisclair said. “It’s time we do our best to break down the stigma on special needs and hopefully have individuals realize it’s okay to be different. My goal in life is to make this world a better place and I truly believe we are on the right track as a nonprofit corporation. Let’s be the difference our community needs.”

 

Alongside his work with His Brightest Stars Nonprofit, Gisclair is also an Emergency Dispatcher for the local fire department, and a single dad to two teenage children. Other board members of His Brightest Stars nonprofit are Abby Bruce, Treasurer; and Samantha Scheibe, Secretary.
