I am blessed to have known Nancy Marsiglia for the past 30 years and was deeply touched by her extraordinary love for the city of New Orleans and her devotion to enriching the lives of others. As one of the first 50 Founders of our Women’s Leadership Council in 2002, Nancy’s volunteer leadership was instrumental in the formation of United Way’s Success By 6 initiative, ensuring that all children, regardless of income, received access to high-quality early education and were ready to learn before entering kindergarten.

At United Way of Southeast Louisiana, we fight for the health, education, and financial stability of every person in every community. That’s why we are engaged in ongoing partnership and collaboration with advocates to address criminal justice reform and strengthen community policing standards in Louisiana.
United Way of Southeast Louisiana engages in policy and advocacy work around issues that our community have indicated are of the highest importance. As more people become familiar with our work around important policy issues, this has raised some concerns among some of our supporters.
Wow, what a week! I came to the United Way Community Leaders Conference to learn, share and grow with those that we fight alongside each day - fighting for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community. But I also came with another purpose, to celebrate 30 years of service given to United Way by our teammates, Beth Terry, Chief Transformation Officer [retired] and Gail Dixon, Accounts Payable Coordinator.
Urban dictionary defines mom as "The woman who loves you unconditionally from birth, the one who puts her kids before herself and the one who you can always count on above everyone else. Just telling her your problems makes you feel better because moms always know how to make it all go away. Even if you fight, know that she's just looking out for your best interests." Mom: what an amazing role to play, and often it's a role that is thankless and goes unnoticed.
We’re wrapping up a week of thanks and acknowledgement to all of our incredible volunteers during National Volunteer week. We have asked our social media followers to share their United Way Volunteering stories for a chance to win a pair of tickets to the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival and we’re happy to announce our winner!
