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. 


More than three-quarters of our funding comes from grants and contracts. While these funds support important services for our community, they are restricted to specific programming and are reliant on political and economic trends far beyond our control. In the same way, School Readiness Tax Credits provide a broad base of support for a narrow age range (0-5) and require legislative approval every 5 years. 

There are three main ways you can support the Children’s Coalition:
