Employment Opportunities

Are you interested in joing the Family Justice Center of Central Louisiana team? We are currently searching for the positions listed below. If there are no job listings posted at this time, please check back at a later date.

Volunteer opportunities are always available. Please visit our Volunteer page to learn more.


Attending the community events put on by the Family Justice Center or our partners are a great way to show your support and bring awareness to the issues of domestic and family violence. Some events to look forward to throughout the year include:

  • Victim’s Rights March
  • Candlelight Vigil, National Day of Remembrance
  • Holiday Open House and Fundraiser


As with any family, the holidays are an important time for our survivors and their children. The first holiday season after we meet these families is often the hardest for them, both mentally and financially. Ways that you can help make the holidays special for these brave people include:

  • Providing holiday meals (through monetary donations or gift cards).
  • “Adopting” a survivor, child or family and fulfilling their Christmas list.


The Family Justice Center is always looking for volunteers who are passionate about helping and empowering others. What we need from our volunteers changes from day to day but some common tasks are:

  • Cleaning
  • Preparing intake folders
  • Court escorts
  • Making copies of documents
  • Answering phones

Call or come by the Center anytime to obtain more information on volunteering



Ways to Give


Donations in the form of cash, check, or gift card are often the most difficult type to secure and are always welcome. All donations are greatly appreciated, no matter the amount.  If you are interested in allocating money for a specific purpose (such as children’s snacks, gas for survivors or covering court cost), just let us know!


We keep non-perishable food items on hand for our survivors and their children. As we all know children are always hungry for a snack. Crackers, granola bars, mac and cheese cups, and juice boxes go a long way in making the children feel comfortable and protected while at our Center.

When survivors are in need of a protective order, they are often at our Center for most of the day, often times during lunch. Tuna/chicken packs, protein bars, popcorn, etc. provide our survivors with something to eat while completing this lengthy, yet vitally important task.

In addition to feeding survivors while at the Center, many of the families we see benefit greatly from taking a few pantry items with them when they leave. Canned goods, cereal, canned proteins, breakfast items, etc. are all welcome items that give our survivors and their children proper nutrition while in this important transitional phase.

During our day-to-day operations our survivors of violence go through many bottles of water and cups of coffee. When each person comes through our door they are immediately offered water, coffee, and a snack to give them some sense of comfort and normalcy. We rely heavily on donations to keep these items in stock. Cases of water, packs of coffee, sugar, creamer, coffee cups and stirrers are very often in short supply.

Our work wouldn’t be possible without our partnering agencies.
