Program Authorization: R.S. 46:2521
The mission of the Administrative Program is to act as a facilitator, among and between all levels of the public and private sectors, in the coordination of services geared to meet the needs of women. The Office of Women's Services is mandated and committed to assisting such programs in achieving the most positive outcomes for the women they serve by avoiding the unnecessary duplication or fragmentation of such services. The Office of Women's Services is also mandated and committed to developing and administering the kind of direct service programs that empower and enable women to successfully carry out their roles as mothers, homemakers, spouses, employers, employees, taxpayers, productive citizens, and individuals.
The goal of the Administrative Program is to help women to help themselves in their pursuit of stable families, education and job skills, careers, personal growth, and economic self-sufficiency.
