In times of disaster, Capital Area United Way provides resources to aid in relief and recovery efforts. Long-term recovery from disasters takes time, money, volunteers and strong partnerships, and we stand ready to facilitate providing resources to those who need it most.
On February 7, 2016 tornadoes caused widespread damage throughout the capital region. Three of the ten parishes we serve were significantly impacted by the tornadoes, and we are working with our partners to assess the damage and needs.
Thousands of people in our region lost their homes and businesses in the floods that occurred in August 2016. Capital Area United Way responded quickly to begin providing donated goods to flood survivors. Recovery from this disaster will likely take years, and we are committed to helping our community move forward from this devastating event.
