RAPIDES PARISH SCHOOLS, HAYNESVILLE FIGHTING TOBACCO AND VAPING

What Do DeRidder, Tullos, Urania, Olla & Jena Have In Common? Getting Healthy!

Central Louisiana is really showing the way for towns and cities all over the state to be healthier and, boy, is LHCC proud to be a part of these efforts with our mini-grants!
