Volunteers of America Greater Baton Rouge has played a large part in South Louisiana's recovery from the recent natural and man-made disasters that have impacted our state.
If you are in the Greater Baton Rouge area and are seeking disaster-relief associated with Hurricane Isaac, please dial 2-1-1 or (225) 923-2114 to be connected to Capital Area United Way and the Baton Rouge Crisis Intervention Center. Trained counselors are available to link callers to agencies in the community depending on their need.
In the aftermath of Hurricanes Katrina and Rita in 2005, Volunteers of America Greater Baton Rouge provided crisis counseling to thousands of displaced citizens through Louisiana Spirit. After the BP Deepwater Horizon oil disaster, our affiliate was selected to help provide claims assistance to fishermen, small businesses and impacted individuals in the Acadiana parishes of Iberia, Lafayette, St. Mary and Vermilion.
Volunteers of America Greater Baton Rouge is committed to doing whatever comes to hand in the service of God and humanity. Our programs reflect current community needs in South Louisiana and, in the event of disaster, we will go wherever the need is.
