Women’s Resource Center Increases Free Car Seat Safety Classes

The Women’s Resource Center has officially increased its popular free car seat safety class to twice a month in order to meet the growing demand in the Natchitoches area.

Traffic accidents are the leading cause of death for children between the ages of 3-14 in the United States. It is not just about how adults drive, but how children are placed in the car. Car seats for infants lessen the risk of death under the age of 1 by 71%.

Registered child passenger safety technicians are car seat experts that are able to help with information and inspections. CPST’s Danette Westfall, Deputy Dorsey, and Megan Goff have taught the highly in-demand class for the past three years, equipping hundreds of women in the community.

Attendees of the Car Seat Safety Class receive a brand-new car seat and one-on-one instruction on how to properly install it safely, as well as information on other types and safety rules and laws in Louisiana. They are also invited to bring a support person along with them in the class.

The Women’s Resource Center is a nonprofit organization that empowers women to make life-affirming choices. They offer a multitude of support and assistance throughout a woman’s pregnancy journey free of charge.

If interested in attending this complimentary class (available to pregnant women in the Natchitoches and surrounding areas), call 318-357-8888 or message the Women’s Resource Center on Facebook to inquire more about the process*.

*Must have finished main visits before taking monthly offered classes.”
