Effecting positive change for children in need of safe, loving and permanent families is a critical mission of the Louisiana Institute of Children in Families. LICF’s Legislative Resource Program directly engages policymakers on key issues in the child welfare arena through education and policy support.
Through multiple policy sessions, legislative briefings, and sharing key data and information from child welfare organizations in our state and nation, the Legislative Resource Program empowers legislators and other policy makers with access to the most current, relevant and meaningful body of work to support improvements in the laws, policies and procedures used in foster care and adoption in Louisiana.
The LICF Legislative Resource Program is not a one way street. In addition to providing information to legislators, the program enables dialogue and idea exchange on very complex issues with experts in the fields of attachment, early childhood brain development, trauma informed care, permanency, aging out of care, and many others.
