Louisiana United Way Disaster Relief

Intense flooding in Louisiana wreaked havoc on more than 100,000 families in south Louisiana. Many residents lost their homes, cars and possessions, with tens of thousands of residents now cleaning up and facing their recovery. Louisiana United Ways are coordinating efforts to help meet the unmet needs of families and their communities, now and in the future. 

The Louisiana Association of United Ways invites everyone to lend a helping hand to restore lives.  This fund will provide critical resources to regional United Ways who are coordinating efforts to help flood victims in local communities impacted by the historical flood.

Your support is urgently needed. Please give to the Louisiana United Way Flood Fund.  Text HELPLA to 313131 or click here.

For more information about the Louisiana United Way Flood Fund, please contact LAUW President and CEO Sarah Berthelot at

Donations to the Louisiana United Way Flood Fund will support the efforts of Louisiana United Ways actively responding to the flood disaster.  These organizations include the Capital Area United Way, St. Landry – Evangeline United Way, United Way of Acadiana, United Way of Central Louisiana, United Way of Iberia, United Way of Southeast Louisiana and the United Way of Southwest Louisiana.  

Thanks to the generosity of the 21 Century Fox Foundation, 100% of individual donations given to the Louisiana United Way Flood Fund will be directed to relief and recovery efforts.
