Relief for victims of Hurricane Ida

In response to the devastation inflicted by Hurricane Ida on communities in Louisiana and neighboring states, SVCF has assembled a list of nonprofit organizations that are providing relief to residents in the region. These local and national agencies are monitoring the needs of local residents affected by Hurricane Ida and its aftermath.

For those who wish to support community foundations that are serving local needs across the South and in parts of the Northeast also affected, you can find a tool for identifying local community foundations here.
