Basic Needs

When basic needs such as food, clothing, and shelter are not in place, the consequences can be severe. This is why United Way of Central Louisiana fights to ensure that the basic necessities of life are available for those in need.

Our Goal

Families will be connected to and utilize local resources and programs.

Our Strategies

  • Connect people to social services (i.e. SNAP, Medicaid, etc.)
