Welcome to the Children's Coalition for Northeast Louisiana

The Children’s Coalition for Northeast Louisiana is a membership-based 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization dedicated to creating communities where children and families thrive. We address the needs of children and youth ages 0-18 in four main areas: Early Care and Education, Healthy Living, Parent Education and Youth Development. Through providing services that address critical issues and raise the level of care and support for children 0-18 in our region, it’s the hope of the Children’s Coalition to create a stronger, more empowered community that will bring prosperity to Northeast Louisiana.

Creating communities where children and families thrive by…

  • Collaborating with partner organizations and agencies to identify and address critical issues related to children and youth.
  • Facilitating change by bringing together people and programs to meet specific needs of children and families in our community.
  • Educating parents, professionals and policy-makers on “what works” for children in our community.

The Benefits of Membership

While there are some tangible benefits of memberships--discounts, email updates, annual events--it is really about investing in our children. Your membership dollars allow us to quickly respond to community needs—such as suicide prevention—or sustain programs that are no longer funded. As a member of the coalition you become part of a region-wide group of professionals and parents who care for and about our children. That is the real benefit of membership--join us.
