The Extra Mile is a statewide network of professional staff and volunteers dedicated to enhancing and enriching the quality of life for all persons served by
public human service agencies.
Since 1991, these non-profit organizations have helped persons served by the Jefferson Parish Human Services Authority, Metropolitan Human Services District, Florida Parishes Human Services District, and the State Offices of Mental Health, Public Health, Citizens with Developmental Disabilities, and Addictive Disorders. We also work with a wide array of community partners who support persons with human services needs.
The Extra Mile programs across the state provide education, support, advocacy, and/or monetary assistance to fill needs as determined by individual communities.
