What is United Way of Northwest Louisiana?
United Way of NWLA fights for the education, health and financial stability for all citizens living in Northwest Louisiana, while maintaining essential needs for those who are struggling in our community. United Way envisions a community where every individual has an opportunity to succeed, and entire communities thrive as a result.
The work is fueled by the passion of 15,000 individual donors, 800 businesses and more than 2,800 hours of volunteerism from those who give their time, their money and their voice to improve the lives of others.
Every day, volunteers, donors and advocates change the story in so many ways. That can mean helping a child learn to read, donating money to make sure people have access to quality medical care, speaking out in support of policies that provide training for indemand jobs and so much more.
