Family and Youth Counseling Agency Statement of Financial Position
A Cornerstone for Family Services
Family & Youth has been a cornerstone for family oriented services in
Southwest Louisiana since its founding by the Junior League of Lake
Charles in 1970. In its forty-six years of service, Family & Youth has
grown from a small counseling service agency into
the inclusive organization that it is today, boasting
eight divisions under its business umbrella. Together,
the eight divisions of Family & Youth provide an
encompassing range of services to the community of
Southwest Louisiana. Just as Southwest Louisiana
itself has grown and expanded to meet the needs
of its community over the years, so has Family &

2016 Chairman of
the Board
Today, Southwest Louisiana is growing again,
bringing in new residents, businesses, and other
beneficial economic growth. Again, Family & Youth
will expand and grow to accommodate our residents,
both new and old, and the needs that may arise during
this time.
Already, Family & Youth has responded to the
expected increase by initiating a Domestic Abuse
Response program to help women overcome the struggles of an abusive
relationship. Family & Youth is also increasing access to the Children’s
Advocacy Center by training new staff and adding daily interview slots,
ensuring that as the number of cases of child abuse increase that the CAC
will be able to meet the demand. This guarantees no child is turned away
and interviews occur in a timely manner, reducing the trauma of physical
and/or sexual abuse experienced by children and adolescents.
Julio Galan
President and CEO
Family & Youth’s ability to make a difference in SWLA and to continue to
expand and grow to meet the needs in our community is due to the generosity
of our donors who support Family & Youth in all of its endeavors. We
would like to say a sincere and heartfelt THANK YOU to everyone who
has supported Family & Youth in the past, the present, and in the future.
Our donors are critical to the work we do; every donor, every dollar, makes
a difference in the lives of the clients we serve. We thank each of our donors
for giving their time and treasure to support Family & Youth and its mission
to serve SWLA. We hope that you continue to support Family & Youth, and
individuals in our community, for years to come.
2015 has come to an end and we are looking forward to all that 2016 and
beyond will have to offer. Southwest Louisiana is looking towards a bright
future, and so is Family & Youth. Thank you again for your guidance and
support throughout the year as we dedicate ourselves to continuing to meet
the needs of Southwest Louisiana’s children and families.

Why Focus on Strengths?
Dr. Candis Carr, Ed.D., Senior Vice President
Picture this outdated scene: A counselor and client sit face to face.
Because the client has requested a meeting with a counselor to
discuss a problem in his life, and because the counselor is able to
identify and understand problems, certain assumptions hang in the
air. For the client, it is the conviction that the counselor knows what
to do and has all the answers to fix the client’s problem, and for the
counselor, it is the expectation that a deficit, disorder, or dysfunction
contributes to the problem and therefore has to be eliminated.
Once upon a time, professional counselors were entrenched in a
“concept of knowing” that suggested they could “objectively observe
clients and accurately come to know particular truths about them.”
After these truths were determined and explained by the counselor, a
remedy could be prescribed to minimize or even eliminate the deficit,
disorder, or dysfunction troubling the client. In turn, the client would
accept the counselor’s views, pay his fee, and set out to apply the
remedy as prescribed. Seems simple enough, yes? But is it realistic?
Fast forward to today. Professional counseling in modern times is a
collaborative effort between a skillful counselor and willing client
for the purpose of focusing on concerns highlighted by the client.
The overall goal is changes in behavior leading to improvements in
emotional, social, and vocational functioning as desired by the client.
It goes something like this…
A counselor and client sit face to face. Because the client has
requested a meeting with a counselor to discuss a problem in his life,
and because the counselor is able to quickly connect with the client,
establish rapport, and accurately validate the client’s strengths,
coping skills, and support systems, a feeling of fresh hope hangs in
the air. For the client, it is hope buoyed by an awareness that the
counselor understands exactly what the client is concerned about
and wants to focus on issues important to the client. The two will work
together to address the client’s concerns. For the counselor, it is the
understanding that all clients have unrecognized, unnamed, and
unappreciated strengths, talents, and skills that when highlighted
create advantage in securing problem resolution and long-term
improvements in well-being.
And thus we see that strength-based counseling is a shift from the
pathology-focused, medical model of counseling to a perspective that
uses clients’ assets to create lasting change. Armed with our strengths,
we are able to learn and prosper from adversity, as opposed to being
forever diminished.
Family & Youth has long been guided by the strength-based principle
that all individuals possess the ability to solve their own challenges
and live full and healthy lives when support is available. Based on
the belief that people are resilient and will bounce back from life’s
adversities, despite the odds, a strength-based perspective discourages
amplifying deficits and encourages a preoccupation with developing
strengths. As is often said, “What we pay attention to grows.”
While perusing the 2015 Family & Youth Annual Report, we also
reflect thoughtfully on the people behind the numbers. Professional
staff from Shannon Cox Counseling Center, Performance Employee
Assistance and Business Services, and Autism Support Alliance
are able to recall countless instances in which clients mustered their
strengths, talents, and skills to battle grief and despair; sexual and
physical abuse; family separation and divorce; job loss and uncertainty;
accidents and illnesses; and the persistent anxiety and depression that
can accompany any of life’s challenges.
I recently asked a client to name again his most predominant
strength. Moments before my question, he had shared with me a
stunning disappointment
involving his family, his
money, and his future.
He starred achingly
into the distance for
a few seconds, and
then spoke strongly
the word endurance.
“When it gets really bad,
something comes over
me, and I just know what
I must do to get through
it.” “Maybe it’s my ancient Viking heritage,” he laughed, “but I know
how to endure, and I will get past this.”
Minutes later, as he stood to leave the office, I noticed he seemed a
little taller than before, and certainly more confident.

Different Reasons, Same Challenges
David Duplechian, Vice President
2005. Hurricane Rita. Housing shortages. Population increases as people
move into the area to rebuild homes, apartments, and infrastructure.
2015. Economic Expansion. Anticipated housing shortages. Population
increases as people move into the area to build out the new industrial
Different reasons. Same challenges and opportunities. HSRI is there.
In 2005, HSRI began as the Human Services Response Initiative in response
to Mayor Roach’s request to establish a “command center” for human
services to meet the needs of residents returning to SWLA in the aftermath
of Hurricane Rita. HSRI established a process and structure for the
systematic, coordinated, and effective delivery of human services to address
the consequences of not only Hurricane Rita, but any major disaster or
emergency faced by communities, promoting collaboration and partnerships
on behalf of affected people.
As the needs of the community shifted from the immediate response phase to
the long term recovery phase, HSRI became the Human Services Response
Institute, a Disaster Recovery Organization, with a mission to establish a
supportive network, process, and structure for the systematic, coordinated,
and effective delivery of human services to address the consequences of
disaster. HSRI worked closely with governmental officials and national
nonprofits in the procurement of financial resources, and was able to invest
$1.8 million dollars on behalf of 1,599 families in SWLA, enabling them to
transition from temporary government housing into permanent structures,
to resume their previous occupations, and in some cases, to get the training
necessary to secure better employment than they had before the storm.
Now, as SWLA experiences the largest economic growth in the nation, HSRI
continues to respond by facilitating solutions for a changing environment.
HSRI’s organized system enables it to proactively address emerging human
needs and improve the area’s quality of life, identifying and responding to
community challenges brought about not only by disaster or emergency, but
by growth and change as well.
Family & Youth believes that all individuals possess the ability to solve their
own challenges and live full and healthy lives when support is available, and
it is through programs like HSRI that affordable and professional support is
