United Way helps the homeless

United Way Campaign

The United Way for the Greater New Orleans Area works to create opportunities for a good life for all members of our community by investing in programs that target community needs.

We bring together people from across our seven-parish region—people from government, business, faith groups, nonprofits, and ordinary citizens—to provide a coordinated response so we can have a healthy quality of life, a strong workforce and brighter economic future.

Your donation allows more than 100 health and human service agencies to serve people in our region each year.

Helping Loyola Live United

The United Way is positioned to strengthen the community’s ability to impact its own problems. Since 2003, Loyola University New Orleans has raised more than $175,000 for United Way. This has been accomplished with the help of dedicated faculty, staff and students working together to make our community a better place to live.
