Our hearts and thoughts are with the people of Paris

Dear Neighbors,

Southeast Louisiana and our greater New Orleans area have a deep connection to France.  It's part of our culture--architecture, food, music and more.

In the wake of the recent attacks, I thought you should know what United Way Worldwide (UWW) has been doing to help the people of Paris.

As French authorities, the Mairie of Paris (City Hall) and nonprofits address the immediate needs of the victims of the attacks, they are also concerned with the long-term prospects for social cohesion in France, particularly in underprivileged areas.

Are You Poor?

If not, you are fortunate.

But chances are you know someone who is living in poverty. Maybe someone in your neighborhood...perhaps a friend or even a family member.

Hurricane Katrina Ten Years Later United Way is Here for You Before. During. After. Always.

August 29, 2005 is indelibly etched in our minds as a day of heartaches and heroes. The world watched in horror as the southeast Louisiana landscape and our lives were forever changed by Hurricane Katrina. Just three weeks later, Hurricane Rita roared ashore causing additional damage. Generations from now the catastrophes of Katrina and Rita will still be defining points in our history. And, then, as now, United Way of Southeast Louisiana will proudly say it was here for you.
