LACFA
Louisiana Association of Children & Family Agencies

We believe that our greatest challenges as a profession are ahead of us as we begin to navigate through the dramatic changes occurring in service delivery for our most vulnerable children and their families. At no greater time in our history do we recognize that there is significant value in joining forces, forging relationships and developing from one another’s talents and ideas. For more than 40 years, LACFA has been providing important avenues for advocacy, networking, and professional development.

LACCA, the Louisiana Association of Child Care Agencies, adopted the name, the Louisiana Association of Children and Family Agencies (LACFA), to more accurately represent the range of services provided by its members to at­­-risk children and their families.
