Created in October 2005, Project Fleur-de-lis (PFDL), a program of Mercy Family Center, began as an intermediate and long-term school-based mental health service program for youth and families who have been and/or continue to be impacted by trauma. PFDL was initially created in direct response to the overwhelming mental health needs of youth and families in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. Over the past 12 years, PFDL has evolved to provide evidence-based treatment to youth, military families, and communities who have been impacted by community violence and interpersonal conflict.
