Who We Are

Our mission is to unite people and organizations with passion, expertise, and resources to create more opportunities for a better life.

Featured Programs

We are more than the fundraisers. We are the hand raisers. The game changers.
We surround a community’s most critical problems and we fight. In order to live better, we must LIVE UNITED


We win by LIVING UNITED. By forging unlikely partnerships. By finding new solutions to old problems.


In a single year, more than are 62,000 people engaged as part of the United Way of Acadiana movement for Education.


Financial stability is more than just earning money. It’s about saving for the future. It’s about planning ahead for a disaster. It’s about having peace of mind.


No one should have to face a crisis alone. Helping our most vulnerable neighbors, in turn, helps us all succeed as a community.

Live United

Better Together

United Way of Acadiana is committed to serving Acadia, Iberia, Lafayette, St. Martin, and Vermilion parishes.

Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life. Advancing the common good is less about helping one person at a time and more about changing systems to help all of us. We are all connected and interdependent.

We recognize that in order to achieve our mission, we must continuously strive to be relevant and responsive to our community as a whole. As the diversity in our community grows, we must be increasingly intentional about aligning our practices and policies. United Way of Acadiana understands diversity to include all human characteristics that make us unique as individuals. It includes everyone and excludes no one. Inclusion is our strategy to leverage the diversity of our community.
