About Us

Since 1896, Volunteers of America's ministry of service has supported and empowered America's most vulnerable people, touching the mind, body and spirit of those we serve. Volunteers of America Southeast Louisiana addresses the most challenging issues of the day and develops innovative solutions to meet the needs of our community. Our diverse offering of more than 20 human services programs enables us to support and empower children, families, seniors, individuals with disabilities and veterans in 16 south Louisiana parishes. Delivering lifesaving short-term as well as lifelong services to those in need, we support over 50,000 of the most underserved individuals in our community annually. As an affiliate of a leading national human service charity, Volunteers of America Southeast Louisiana has a rich history and a promising future in south Louisiana.

Robert and Joseph have been living together with Volunteers of America for more than 25 years. Volunteers of America's Community Living Services stepped in when their mother could no longer care for them. Our Community Living Services Program offers persons with intellectual disabilities a chance to live independent, happy lives.

Mr. Charles was like many older adults living on a fixed income. He needed help to make repairs to his home of more than 30 years, and Volunteers of America stepped to ensure that Charles could keep living a happy, safe life in his home.
