Family & Youth Counseling Agency, an award-winning organization, was established as a nonprofit organization in 1970 to provide affordable and professional family services to the community of Southwest Louisiana. It is the belief of Family & Youth that all individuals possess the ability to solve their own challenges and live full and healthy lives when support is available. Family & Youth provides programs and services dedicated to advocacy, counseling, and education. This year, Family & Youth hosted their 19th Annual “Connections Count” Professional Development Conference at L’auberge in Lake Charles. The conference allowed fellow professionals and practitioners from SWLA to come together and expand their knowledge pertaining to mental and behavioral health. CSE Federal Credit Union takes pride in their support towards the on-going success of Family & Youth Counseling Agency.
