What We Do
United Way fights for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community.
United Way envisions a world where all individuals and families achieve their human potential through education, income stability, and healthy lives.
We focus on Earnings with programs from free tax-prep to financial savings education and coaching. We focus on Essentials by responding to crises from hurricanes to floods by providing basic needs and partnering with local organizations that reach the community in need. We focus on Education with goals that aim to see at least 90 percent of students graduate high school on time and United Way Readers who make a difference in early-grade literacy.
We win by LIVING UNITED. By forging unlikely partnerships. By finding new solutions to old problems. By mobilizing the best resources. And by inspiring individuals to join the fight against their community’s most daunting social crises.

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.
