We are the problem solvers, the hand raisers, and the game changers.

We go after our community’s toughest challenges and come up with new solutions to old problems, working with people from all walks of life to turn those solutions into action. It’s not easy, but we never give up.
And we don’t do it alone.

For over 62 years, United Way of Northeast Louisiana has been the unifying force that brings passionate individuals, businesses, government entities, and non-profits together to build a stronger, healthier community. We accomplish this by mobilizing partners and resources throughout the 12-parish region in a united effort to identify and respond to our community’s most critical needs.

We get results, whether through initiatives like READ.LEARN.SUCCEED., providing free community services like United Way 2-1-1 or employee engagement opportunities through our VolunteerUNITED Volunteer Engagement Center, fueling collective impact by collaborating to tackle issues like hunger (Lincoln Parish Hunger Task Force) and homelessness (United Against Homelessness), or investing in the work of our partners who are providing critical community services.

Together, we fight for the Education, Financial Stability, and Health of every person in our community.

With more than 1,100 volunteers and over 9,000 donors, we’re powered by thousands of locals who want to help people and improve our community—now and for generations to come.
