The Central Louisiana Human Services District

Community Programs

CLHSD partners with several providers in our community to ensure access to additional resources in Central Louisiana.  The Extra Mile provides several beneficial services, including a clothing closet, drop-in centers, and a food pantry to individuals receiving mental health treatment. The Louisiana State Opioid Response Grant provides life-saving Narcan for overdose reversal, education on safe medication practices, and products for proper storage and disposal of medication at no cost to the public. CLHSD supports the community through partnerships with the 9th Judicial District Court for mental health court coordination, LSUA for counseling services, SaveCenla for suicide prevention training, and Volunteers of America for homeless outreach and permanent supported housing. CLHSD also partners with Red River Treatment Center to provide inpatient adult substance use treatment and Central Louisiana Aides Supports Services for outreach to follow-up with high risk substance users, their associates, and neighborhood residents.
