United Way of Southwest Louisiana has helped people for more than 78 years. Through hurricanes, economic downturns, unforeseen losses and more,
Southwest Louisiana has trusted United Way to provide monetary and voluntary assistance in times of need.
As a community united, we have done just that. We've created a safety net, but it's not enough. For our community to move forward we must continue to move people and families to positions of
lasting independence. In direct alignment with the goals of United Way Worldwide, United Way of Southwest Louisiana recognizes the following community impact areas: Education, Economic
Mobility, Basic Needs and Health, as the building blocks for opportunity--individually and collectively.
In order to meet the most critical needs in our community, funding is limited to programs that target the "At-Risk" population. For a clear definition of each individual focus area and
possible "At-Risk" indicators please follow the link below.
