Become Certified Foster/Foster to Adopt Parents
Currently, there is a shortage of certified foster parents in Southeast Louisiana. Couples and individuals are needed to take children into families to provide love and care during a critical time in the life of a child. Foster parents must be certified by Louisiana’s Department of Children and Family Services.
Become A Court Appointed Special Advocate
Children in foster care are extremely vulnerable and often do not have an adult to speak on their behalf. The solution is a CASA – a specially trained advocate, appointed by a judge, who fights for the rights of children throughout their journey in the foster care system. CASAs speak or meet with their appointed child once a month and attend court hearings on behalf of the child.
Become a Special Projects Volunteer
Throughout the year, Crossroads NOLA facilitates special projects to minister to children in foster care and foster families. Some special projects may be annual, seasonal events like a school supply drive. Other special projects may be one-time volunteer opportunities. By signing up to be a Special Projects Volunteer, you will be added to our database and will receive an email when volunteer opportunities arise.
