About Us

Founders Stephen and Mona Wright established this organization after 35 plus years of leading, working with, and funding multiple non-profit organizations both domestically and internationally. Over their many years of dedicated service, they have personally contributed over $1 million to support organizations and their causes to make life better for all. During these years of service in healthcare and primary education, they have continued to identify needs for new services and programs to meet the endless global development priorities identified in the mission statement of Coastal Connection.

Historically, their interests have included such organizations and services such as local community food banks, primary school food backpack programs, Cross Catholic Outreach for Haiti, St. Francois de Sales Hospital- Haiti, Children’s Miracle Network, Louisiana State University-Alexandria, American Red Cross, American Cancer Society, Catholic Charities, Catholic Healthcare Organizations, Boy Scouts, Hope House, Manna House, and several others throughout their years.
