Ekhaya Family Support Organization Services
Our staff is made up of young adults, parents and guardians of children with emotional and behavioral challenges. The staff understands the unique challenges and provides peer to peer support to families in Louisiana. We provide one on one support if a family is involved with the Louisiana CSoC. Families are involved in a wraparound service developing a team to help unify the family.
All the services provided are intended to educate youth and their families we work with as well as the community. Families are able to get the needed support as well as learn new skills. Staff is trained to educate families and teach advocacy skills.
Advocating is an important skill to learn. Our family support partners are trained to prepare families to build confidence, and to speak about what's best for their families. We encourage and help find resources to help the family remain strong once services are no longer in place.
