NATCHITOCHES, La. (NSU) - Louisiana First Lady Donna Edwards visited with a large group of Natchitoches women Thursday to share information about programs supported through the Louisiana First Foundation, her platform that focuses on children and families.

Initiatives include Teach MAM (Music, Art and Movement), advocating against human trafficking and providing greater resources to the state’s foster children and parents.

Teach MAM encourages schools to incorporate music, arts and physical courses in the daily curriculum.

Louisiana Fosters seeks to expand the network of community and faith-based supports for foster parents and Metanoia is a safe haven in Louisiana for victims of sex trafficking.
