United Way of Southeast Louisiana, serving Jefferson, Orleans, Plaquemines, St. Bernard, St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington parishes is accepting donations to assist those impacted by flooding in our region. Family members, neighbors and friends have had to be
rescued from rising waters.
Long-term recovery and rebuilding takes time, money, and is more than just brick and mortar. United Way
supported programs with nonprofit Community Impact Partner Agencies can provide food, clothing, counseling and other services to make people whole.
United Way of Southeast Louisiana President and CEO Michael Williamson says, “Mother Nature has hit our area with
a one-two-punch. Just two weeks ago deadly tornadoes roared through and now we’re fighting flooding. Our residents are resilient, but they need help to recover.” Staff is currently working with local nonprofits in St. Tammany, Tangipahoa and Washington Parishes to assess the greatest needs for long-term recovery.
Citizens in need of services should dial 2-1-1. VIA LINK 2-1-1 is available 24/7. VIA LINK is a partner agency of United Way and provides information, referrals, training, and crisis intervention to people, organizations, and communities so they can help themselves and others.
