Praying Together

HEALING

& SUPPORT SERVICES

Healing and support services are not a one-size-fits-all kind of resource. Your healing process may require different approaches that LaVO may not be able to provide. Although we are trauma-informed and healing oriented, we specialize in pardons and parole guidance and crime victim services. If you are not a victim of a crime, but still suffer from trauma, mental health issues, etc., then we think this list of resources will help guide you on who is best fit to help you in your time of need. We don't want our own limitations to keep you from continuing your process of healing. 

 

As always, feel free to reach out to us if you have questions about this list that we've compiled. 

For an extensive list of resources categorized by parish, please download our Louisiana Healing and Support Services Resource Guide below.
 

We will continue to update this guide, so please check back often.
