The Volunteer Louisiana Commission manages the statewide online volunteer portal: VolunteerLouisiana.gov.
The online network connects Louisiana’s citizens and out-of-state volunteers with volunteer service opportunities available in all communities throughout the state. Since the Hurricanes of 2005, the Governor’s Office of Homeland Security and Emergency Preparedness has designated Volunteer Louisiana in the State’s Emergency Operations Plan as the lead agency responsible for Spontaneous Volunteer Management in the event of a disaster or emergency. It has also designated the VolunteerLouisiana.gov system to be the management system for all volunteers wanting to offer assistance in an emergency and for all service organizations requesting voluntary assistance in an emergency.
