Metro would like to send out a huge “Thank You” to everyone who participated in the change of the play area for the children. Our thanks goes out to Moisant Kiwani’s Club and Jefferson Feed for all you have done!!
Metro is in need of toiletries. Metro’s preference is regular-size items of liquid body wash, deodorant and shampoo. We are striving to meet the needs of our survivors in all possible ways.
METRO is pleased to announce that we have received recertification from the Louisiana Foundation Against Sexual Assault (LAFASA) to provide services to sexual assault survivors. This certification ensures that all survivors receive services… based on LAFASA’s Standards. If you are a survivor and would like free and confidential services, call Metro’s 24-hour Crisis Line at 504-837-5400. METRO also provide Sexual Assault Services in St. Tammany Parish.
