About US


Discovery and Renew are academic programs under the Department of Health and Human Sciences with the College of Nursing and Health Sciences of Southeastern Louisiana University. The projects are two of nine centers affiliated with the Louisiana Family Resource Centers Network an organization with members all across the state. Discovery was established in 1999 and Renew was established on November 12, 2009.   Our MISSION is to strive to ensure the safety and well-being of children in a permanent home. 

The Family Resource Projects provide a continuum of family preservation and support services for families receiving services through the Department of Children and Family Services. Services may be provided through group-based education, individualized curricula, or Family Skills Building training for specific parenting needs, which are not addressed through another curriculum. Services are available to families whose children are in Foster Care or placed with relatives, or families who have their children but still have risk factors.
