Mission: To support and strengthen the lives of children, individuals and families through direct services and positive social actions
Programs: The hiv center helps clients access services, resources, and programs that enhance health and well-being. Services include hiv testing, hiv peer prevention, case management, support groups, counseling, health/treatment education, transportation, childcare, and financial assistance toward rent, mortgage payments, utilities, medication, and eye and dental care.
the parenting center promotes healthy family development by providing ongoing workshops, consultations and classes to help parents increase their knowledge, skills and decision making in the important role of effective parenting. The program offers parenting classes and professional workshops for parents, teachers and community groups focused on child development, strategies for effective parenting and a variety of classes that teach proactive methods to promote healthy social emotional growth in children.
the child and family counseling center provides clinical services to children, individuals and families who need help in finding solutions to a wide range of emotional, behavioral and relationship problems. We have trained experts in alcohol/drug abuse issues, parenting issues, and family conflict/violence issues. Services are offered on sliding fee scale without excluding anyone due to income.
My concerns for this organization are financial. Previously FSGBR had great integrity in their financial statements and provided excellent service to the community of Baton Rouge and several parishes surrounding. However, the last three years, their quality of service has decreased. Now I also believe that their financial statements are not very truthful. A number of employees there have warned me that there has been a problem with payroll taxes and retirement benefits not being paid over the last year. This should concern all those who donate to this previously fine agency as well as those clients being provided service.
