Louisiana Benefits from CFR’s Model
CFR adds Louisiana to the growing number of states seeking to replicate our model of wrap around legal and social work support. On March 13th, Deputy Director Michele Cortese and Social Work Supervisor Payal Dalal traveled to Baton Rouge, Louisiana to address the state’s annual conference of the Louisiana Public Defender Board.
CFR presented on our attorney/social work model and lessons learned over years of improving outcomes for our clients. CFR will return to Louisiana in May to provide technical assistance to three Defender offices hoping to pilot our model in child welfare cases.
