Community Impact

Nonprofits touch our lives every day, and the Community Impact series highlights their critical work and the difference they are making.

Each week, New Orleans-based producer Eve Abrams brings you the stories of diverse groups working across southeast Louisiana. You’ll hear directly from leaders and staff on the frontline of important issues, from dedicated volunteers and from the people whose lives have been improved by these nonprofits.
