Description:

ZZ Inactive !€“

** This Provider record is maintained only for call history record. Do Not use for referrals. No updates have been provided**

FFLIC was created in response to horrifying stories of abuse and neglect in Louisiana!€™s secure-care facilities. Louisiana!€™s harsh and punitive juvenile justice system has targeted and mistreated Louisiana!€™s youth. FFLIC advocates for the children who are lost in this abusive system. FFLIC strives to give parents a voice when their children are taken from them. FFLIC!€™s goal is to change the practices and culture in these facilities so that they no longer mimic the adult prison system and instead provide a nurturing and rehabilitative environment.

FFLIC!€™s goal is to make Louisiana!€™s juvenile justice system similar to the Missouri Model. Using the Missouri Model as the base, Louisiana has agreed to transition to LAMOD (Louisiana Model). LAMOD focuses on a therapeutic, child-centered environment. LAMOD includes smaller dorm sizes, homelike environments, and training the youth to be more responsible for their actions and peers. The implementation of LAMOD has been slow, but FFLIC is determined to see that the state makes the necessary changes.

FFLIC is a statewide membership based organization dedicated to creating a better life for all of La.'s youth especially those who are involved in or at risk of becoming involved in the juvenile justice system.
