DCFS Opens New Office in DeSoto Parish for Child Welfare, Economic Stability

DCFS Opens New Office in DeSoto Parish for Child Welfare, Economic Stability

The Louisiana Department of Children and Family Services (DCFS) is opening a new office in DeSoto Parish for Child Welfare and Economic Stability services. The office, located at 104 Crosby Street in Mansfield, will be open to clients beginning today, Monday, August 9.

DCFS occupies the back portion of the building currently housing the DeSoto Parish Registrar of Voters. Some visitors may know this as the building where the DeSoto Parish Health Unit was formerly located. The DCFS office entrance is on the south side of the building.

Twenty DCFS offices were closed or consolidated in 2010 because of cost-saving measures, including the previous DeSoto Parish office. There are still 18 parishes without a DCFS office.

“Rep. Larry Bagley brought this to us as a need for the community, and we’re so glad that he did and happy that it’s finally coming to fruition,” said DCFS Secretary Marketa Garner Walters.
