United Way is advancing the common good by helping people stay healthy.

  • Avoyelles Society for Developmentally Disabled provides a supportive environment for adults with developmental disabilities to learn appropriate work skills and to earn an income through supervised work experience.
  • Central Louisiana AIDS Support Services - United Way funds provide testing for AIDS and other diseases, which are spreading in Cenla at an alarming rate. 
  • YWCA provides swimming classes and exercise programs for children and youth.  This work is crucial in our area: Louisiana has the second highest rate of drowning deaths in the U.S. – and drowning is the #2 cause of death for children under 15.
  • Our United Way provides prescription discount cards through FamilyWize.  To date these cards have saved 10,163 Central Louisiana families $725,941 in prescription costs.  .
