United Way of Northwest Louisiana is an organization that is helping to better our community.  They work closely with many non-profit agencies.  They provide support to the non-profits in many ways.

Just a few of those ways include:

  • by providing training opportunities for the non-profits

  • bringing about community awareness
  • funding grant requests
  • coordinating volunteers for special events that benefit the non-profit agencies
  • providing special services like 211, tax prep services, etc

I would change homelessness.
