United Way of Southeast Louisiana’s J. Wayne Leonard Prosperity Center Grand Reopening on Canal Street.

Across Southeast Louisiana, residents lack the opportunities and support to be healthy, educated, and financially stable. United Way understands poverty is one of the biggest issues facing many communities. The only way to combat poverty is by working together to create change—together, people accomplish more than they ever could alone.

For nearly a hundred years, United Way of Southeast Louisiana has been a part of the fabric of its community. United Way shares the resources, knowledge, and relationships to further develop and implement community-specific solutions for vulnerable residents.

United Way’s presence in Louisiana, with its Blueprint for Prosperity initiative, and collective impact donation model creates a community where everyone has the resources needed to lead a fulfilling, meaningful life.


United Way knows you want to give to organizations that provide a sense of personal fulfillment while understanding the full impact your investment provides to the community. At United Way, it makes sure your dollar goes further by taking a collective impact approach, meaning your donation will work at all levels of society to create a significant impact, while meeting the community’s specific needs.

Simply put, United Way helps people make meaningful change through charitable donations, volunteerism, and advocacy. United Way believes working together with you can transform the community and build a stronger, more equitable Southeast Louisiana that we’re all proud to call home.
