Helping People & Improving Our Community Since 1956.

United Way of Northeast Louisiana fights for the Education, Financial Stability, Health, and Basic Needs of every person in our community. But we are more than the fund-raisers. We are the hand-raisers. We raise our hands not only to lead the fight, but to reach out to people who need help. And hope. 

We win by living united. By forging unlikely partnerships, finding new solutions to old problems, mobilizing the best resources, and inspiring individuals and organizations to fight against our community's most daunting issues. 

So who are the hand-raisers, the game-changers? In Northeast Louisiana, they're people just like you. 

United Way of Northeast Louisiana needs you to join the fight. Because your passion, your expertise, and resources will help the fight become a win. A win that's not just a short-term contribution, but a long-term solution.

We invite you to join the fight. Click HERE to learn more and to see our work in action!
