President and CEO
Twitter: @sarahberthelot

Sarah Hamilton Berthelot serves as President and CEO of the Louisiana Association of United Ways, an organization of eight member United Ways.  For nearly 10 years, Sarah has worked to advance the collective action of United Ways in Louisiana. Sarah was also selected by her fellow state association peers to serve on the United Way Worldwide Network Advisory Council, a body of leaders spanning the global United Way Network.   

With 27 years of nonprofit experience, Sarah fosters the development of statewide impact initiatives, which leverage technology, people-powered capabilities of United Ways and other nonprofit partners to unlock scaled solutions for human service delivery. She has led innovations that have collectively served more than a million Louisianians in their time of individual need. Sarah currently provides project leadership to nine public-private statewide partnerships, including strategic work with the Louisiana Department of Child and Family Services, Louisiana Department of Health, Louisiana Department of Corrections, and Louisiana Board of Regents. Under Sarah’s leadership, LAUW serves as the Principal Combined Fundraising Organization for the Louisiana State Combined Charitable Campaign, partnering with the Division of Administration and 111 state agency teams. Since 2014, the LA SCCC has inspired state employees to donate more than $2.7 million, benefiting more than 130 charities.  

In collaboration with United Ways throughout Louisiana and United for ALICE, Sarah coordinated the introduction of ALICE to Louisiana in 2016 and leads the ALICE Project in Louisiana (ALICE stands for Asset-Limited, Income-Constrained, Employed). The ALICE Project provides a distinct identity to a large segment of Louisiana workers earning above the Federal Poverty Level but not enough to afford the basics. United Ways in Louisiana, with the support of Entergy, have released five statewide ALICE reports and issue-specific briefs focused on Louisiana’s children, veterans and people with disabilities, to shed light on the financial vulnerabilities of working families and contributing factors. These hyperlocal data reports have been abundantly used and referenced by all sectors, including nonprofits, all levels of government, universities, media, students, healthcare systems, business communities, individuals, other research teams, and policy makers.  

Sarah has advanced the work of the Louisiana 211 Statewide Network, which has positioned Louisiana 211 to be one of the most agile 211 state systems in the country. Working as an aligned network of eight nonprofit organizations, Louisiana 211 ensures the people of our state can confidentially access accurate referral and navigation assistance to sources of help in order to meet needs. Louisiana 211 is free and accessible from any location in Louisiana, at any hour of the day, including during times of disaster impacts and recovery. As part of this commitment, Sarah serves as the Cooperative Endeavor Agreement administrator for the No Wrong Door in service to DCFS, advancing the use of technology in human services, leveraging Louisiana 211 functional capabilities, and modernizing regional portals of specialized client navigation through the Louisiana 211 Referral and Care Coordination Centers. Sarah’s leadership for 211 extends nationwide – she is the founding chair of the 211 State Leadership Collaborative, which brings together 211 state system leaders throughout the United States.   

Sarah’s board and task force involvement includes Past President of Louisiana Voluntary Organizations Active During Disaster (VOAD), Board Member for the Louisiana Association of Non-Profit Organizations (LANO), Board Member for the Louisiana Partnership for Children and Families, Leadership Team Member for the Ready Louisiana Coalition, Board Member for the Association of Junior Leaders International (AJLI), Past President of the Junior League of Lafayette, Founding Board Member for the 705 Young Professional Group in Acadiana, Appointed Member for the Louisiana Governor’s Task Force for the 2020 Census, Member of Leadership Lafayette Class XXI, Member of the Children’s Cabinet Advisory Subcommittee, and appointment to the Empower Families to Live Well Legislative Coalition. 

Sarah is a first-generation college graduate of the University of Louisiana at Lafayette, completing a Bachelor of Arts focused on Interpersonal and Public Communications. As part of her collegiate experience, Sarah was the first female elected to be President of the Student Government Association in the university’s history. Upon graduation, she enrolled for a year of service in AmeriCorps, serving as a Construction Coordinator for Habitat for Humanity. 

Sarah has received honors through the years — including being named one of Acadiana’s Women Who Mean Business; recognized as Lady of the Year by the Faith House and named as one of the Top 20 under 40 by The Daily Advertiser. This month, Sarah will receive the Rising Leader Award as part of the 17th Annual Women’s Leadership Conference at the University of Louisiana at Lafayette.

Sarah and her husband, Jon, live in Youngsville. They are the proud parents of two children.
