Our Mission

Our Vision

To build a unified Northeast Louisiana where individuals are thriving and reaching their full human potential.

Three Tenets guide our actions:

Our Philosophy

Serve as a catalyst for individuals with mental health, developmental disabilities, and addictive disorders to help realize their full human potential by offering quality, excellent care with greater accessibility. 

The phoenix represents the shedding of old ways and renewal toward a better existence. It also represents the sun that sinks below the horizon each day and fades away into ashes, rising again each day anew. The ashes are not those of destruction, but rather of hope and wisdom. As with the phoenix, we are always in some phase of growth and transformation. We use the ashes of our former selves to create the person we are destined to become. 

Our Goals


Connect with citizens we serve with resources in their area and help them reach their best potential.


Demonstrate that we understand citizens’ concerns and provide hope and integrity to those we serve.


Focus on commonalities among us rather than differences. Unify around opportunities.
