Caring for Generations

The Baton Rouge Clinic, AMC has been committed to providing care to our neighbors and friends in Baton Rouge and the surrounding area for more than 75 years. At The Baton Rouge Clinic, AMC, we believe that community involvement is a key component in building a healthier city. This belief has led us to participate in numerous outreach initiatives, like sponsoring the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure, the Capital Area Heart Walk, and the Blue Ribbon Soiree. All of these events work to promote early preventative screenings, educate the community on potential risk factors, and provide funding for research on diseases that increasingly affect our region.

For us however, building a better city does not stop at clinical care, preventative screenings or research funding. It also involves combating the social determinants of health that affect our area. We annually participate in local campaigns like Fill a Prescription, Pat’s Coats for Kids, and the St. Vincent de Paul’s Toiletries Drive, which aid and assist underprivileged families in getting the essential resources that they need to live a healthier life. The Baton Rouge Clinic also teams up with local organizations like the Franciscan University to help train the next generation of nurses, and the Baton Rouge Youth Coalition (BRYC) to annually award scholarships to students pursuing careers in the medical field.

Our commitment to care and service would not be possible without the continued trust and support we receive from our patients and our community. Through our efforts, we hope to improve lives and inspire change, so that every person is able to live a happy and healthy life. Our motto has always been “Caring for Generations,” a tradition we have proudly upheld for more than 75 years.

Caring for Generations

Working Together and Finding Solutions

At Campus Federal, we consider ourselves a community within a community–people coming together to help one another, and our members, to make the place where we all live a little better. We provide a values-driven experience, balancing our convenient technology and competitive products with insightful advice. It’s important to feel confident about and have a comfort level with managing finances. Banking should feel empowering, not intimidating. That’s why banking with Campus Federal involves so much more than just transactions. Every decision we make is based on the best interests of our members, along with the communities we serve. Unlike most traditional banks, credit unions are typically connected by a partnership with a company, educational institution, organization or professional industry. Campus Federal has served LSU and its communities since 1934, and we are extremely proud of our bond with the state’s flagship university. But we also embrace a broader concept of unity, as we welcome anyone who lives, works or worships in our home communities of Baton Rouge, New Orleans and Shreveport. Many of the faces you see at our Campus Federal branches have been here for years, allowing us to get to know our members on a more personal level. That familiarity just further strengthens our resolve to find solutions and work together to help our members achieve their personal goals. After all, we’re members too. Each of us has ownership in this. The stronger the union, the better the experience will be for all of us.

Committed to our Community

Nucor Steel Louisiana is a wholly owned subsidiary of Nucor Corporation, the largest U.S. steel producer and recycler in North America. Located in St. James Parish, our direct reduced iron facility uses natural gas at extremely high temperatures to remove oxygen from iron ore and creates a more pure iron unit, which is then shipped by barge to Nucor steel mills around the country. Steel produced with DRI uses significantly less energy and fuel, resulting in less emissions and environmental impacts than traditional blast furnace steel production.

Our challenge is to become the world’s safest steel company. We live each day with gratitude for the families, customers and partners who make our work possible. We are committed to our local communities and build partnerships based on integrity and trust to ensure long-term success.

Since 2013, Nucor Steel Louisiana has built and nurtured a partnership with the American Cancer Society through Relay for Life fundraising and outreach efforts. During this time, we have raised over $1.8 million for the American Cancer Society and had the opportunity to name two research grants in honor of Bailee “Bee” Becnel, a Nucor child who lost her battle with a rare form of brain cancer known as DIPG. Whether serving on planning committees, hosting charitable fundraisers, or engaging in outreach to survivors and caregivers, the Nucor Steel Louisiana team has been ALL IN as we work to put an END to CANCER!

40% of grievers meet the criteria for major depression 1 month after their loss, and 24% still meet the criteria after 2 months. Because of these similarities, a bereaved person cannot be diagnosed with depression until two months have passed since their loss.

OUR MISSION

We cultivate and invest in philanthropic partnerships to advance LSU’s academic priorities.

YOUR IMPACT

From gifts of a few dollars to investments in the tens of millions, LSU donors elevate Louisiana for the benefit of all. Your generosity advances health, security, and prosperity through education, research, and outreach.

VISION FOR THE FUTURE

In June, thanks to donors’ collective generosity, LSU surpassed the $1.5 billion Fierce for the Future Campaign goal three years earlier than anticipated.

The leading campaign commitment was a historic $245 million investment from Our Lady of the Lake Health ($170 million) and LCMC Health ($75 million) to transform healthcare in Louisiana.

Donors gave $115.5 million to fund scholarships, led by contributions of $15.6 million from the Brookshire family, including the university’s largest ever immediate impact donation for scholarships.

Shell USA, Inc.’s $27.5 million gift is the university’s largest gift ever from a for-profit corporation and its largest gift ever in support of energy-related initiatives – including the new LSU Institute for Energy Innovation, made possible by Shell’s investment.

The Our Lady of the Lake Health Interdisciplinary Science Building, slated for construction soon, was supported by donors nationwide, including through Mary Neal, MD, and Ron Neal’s $5 million gift.

The success of LSU’s $1.5 billion Fierce for the Future Campaign –and particularly the achievement of surpassing the campaign goal three years early – exemplifies our donors’ tenacity for joining with LSU to elevate Louisiana and drive global impact. Just as was envisioned, this campaign has positioned LSU to set its course for the future. Now, we are aggressively pursuing that course through LSU’s Scholarship First Agenda.”

Alumna Diane Goyette and Henry Goyette committed $5 million to the LSU Early Childhood Education Institute to advance the research-to-practice pipeline for Louisiana families.

SAVE THE DATE

ONCE AGAIN THIS YEAR, LSU CELEBRATED ITS LARGEST GIVING DAY EVER.

More than 4,500 donors across 45 states came together to support LSU.

But we know passion never rests, so we’re already looking ahead to next year.

You bring your passion. We’ll provide opportunities to elevate Louisiana and make an impact around the world. The possibilities are limitless. geauxgive.lsu.edu

“Not giving a hand-out, but giving a hand-up of compassion & hope”

FOR 157 YEARS, we have been providing compassion and hope to those most in need by serving meals, providing shelter, making home visits, filling prescriptions and the list could go on and on. During these difficult economic times, we are especially working hard to shelter individuals and families experiencing homelessness. When you see someone on a street corner with a sign that says, “Homeless - Need Help,” your first instinct may be to hand them a cash donation, but we do not recommend that approach. Many people are experiencing homelessness because they have lost a job, become disabled, and have no family or friends to turn to, but some are homeless because of mental illness or problems with addiction. What they all need is a safe place to stay, people who care, and a chance to get back on

#1 IN CHILD HUNGER 107k+ FOOD INSECURE IN OUR AREA

Map the Meal Gap 2022 is the latest Feeding America report on food insecurity at the state and parish level from 2020 data. In our 11-parish service area alone, 12.2% of our population overall are food insecure. More staggering is the fact that 1 in 5 children are considered food insecure meaning they are unable to consistently secure the equivalent of three meals a day.

Many of these food insecure children live in a household that does not qualify for most federal nutrition programs. Your Greater Baton Rouge Food Bank is committed to the mission of feeding the hungry by providing food and educational outreach through faith-based and other community partners.

Food insecure households may not always be food insecure, but it may reflect a household’s need to decide between basic needs - such as housing, paying bills and purchasing nutritionally adequate foods for their families.

100 BLACK MEN OF METRO BATON ROUGE, LTD.

MISSION STATEMENT

Our mission is to give substance to a shared vision which fosters and develops model programs that build community by enhancing the lives of our African American youth.

SERVICE AREA

FUNDRAISING PROGRAMS & EVENTS

THE PROGRAMS OF 100 Black Men of Metro Baton Rouge are housed under four programmatic pillars: mentoring, education, health and wellness, and economic empowerment. Programs include Project Excel (mentoring), ACT Prep, Summer Robotics Academy, Respect 4 Life (education), Wise Guys (health & wellness), and Dollars and $ense (financial lieracy). The organization’s primary fundraising event is its annual gala, which supports Project Excel, mentoring programming,

MAKING A DIFFERENCE

THE UNPREDICTABILITY OF the virus and vaccine created a disproportionately negative impact on the communities The 100’s programs serve. Black students who were already dealing with a gap in educational outcomes, faced an even wider gap due to the pandemic. Students in the Baton Rouge community urgently need the programs and services of The 100, and the organization remains fervently committed to the work of uplifting the community. The 2020 coronavirus pandemic has demonstrated that not only is the work necessary, but it is perhaps more vital now than ever.

UPCOMING PROGRAMS

The 100 Black Men of Metro Baton Rouge continues its efforts to curtail violence through promoting anti-violent initiatives amongst inner city youth. The “Respect 4-Life” program which consists of five one-hour sessions based on a five-module curriculum was launched as another effort to help turn the tide on violence in our community. The goal of the program is to help our youth improve self- esteem, parent/child relations, and student/

teacher/peer relations. Students will acquire skills/ techniques and protocols to help minimize conflicts thus improving their outcomes when encountering and engaging with the police. The program targets youth through working in partnership with community serving organizations, churches, schools and governmental entities. Interested individuals and organizations are encouraged to visit our website for additional details.

Helping African-American and other disadvantaged youth to acquire knowledge and adopt practices on wealth creation is essential to overcoming existing wealth disparities and social and economic achievement gaps in our society. For the past 15 years, the 100 has been at the forefront of improving financial literacy through its “Dollars & Sense” Program. This intensive eight-week program focuses on the

fundamentals of personal finance, wealth management, savings, budgeting, credit management, and culminates in a local case competition for scholarships and prizes. The winners at the local level are then offered the opportunity to compete in competition against students from around the nation at the National 100 Convention. The next opportunity to participate in the program will be in Spring 2023.

Given that the result from the ACT exam is a major factor used by colleges for determining admission and scholarships for students, our ACT Prep program remains a vital and growing component in our mentoring portfolio. The program’s primary goal is to increase the number of students enrolling in college with a scholarship. This evidence-based program emphasizes three

critical areas Time Mastery, Test Mastery, and Content Mastery. Students enrolled in the course averaged an increase of two points on their ACT scores, and more than two-thirds of the students scored high enough on the ACT exam to qualify for the TOPS scholarship program. The ACT Prep Course and Bootcamp will be offered in Spring and Fall 2023.

“After 57 years in prison, I realized the world had changed so much. Parole Project gave me a place to live and then helped me reconnect to my family. Every day has been bright since I’ve been home.”

“Parole Project guided me every step of the way. Today, I am employed, I have my own apartment, and I am giving back to my community. Having their support when I came home made all the difference.”

“When I left prison last year, Parole Project was there to help and give me the support I needed to be successful. I’m a taxpayer and I am a good neighbor. I am an example that second chances are working.”

Our Core Values:

We believe in the human potential for change

We believe that public policy should foster hope and embrace second chances.

We believe in removing barriers that strip dignity and inhibit opportunities for formerly incarcerated people to become productive members of our communities.

We believe in successful reentry that restores lives, repairs families, improves communities, and saves taxpayer money.

We believe our clients are shining examples of justice reform and reinvestment in Louisiana.

VISION

We exist to restore love, hope, and provide encouragement by empowering people with knowledge and skills to become self-sustaining productive citizens.

MISSION

One Touch Ministry (OTM) is dedicated to the reduction of recidivism by providing housing, food, clothing, employment readiness and assistance, and counseling to recently released ex-offenders. As a faith-based, non-profit organization, we strive to ensure that ex-offenders who complete the program have all the tools necessary to become law-abiding and productive members of society, through spiritual guidance, education, life skills programming, and mental health counseling

SERVICES

OTM is a faith-based program that believes returning citizens who have a stable housing environment, a strong support network, access to quality post-release programming, and the capability to search for and acquire employment will successfully re-enter society and prosper.

The heartbeat of OTM services comprises spiritual guidance, education, life skills and soft skills, and mental health counseling. The reentry process includes but is not limited to bible study, our caring staff, random drug testing, housing (3 -12 months), one-onone counseling, post-release reentry program, bimonthly “Overcomers” sessions, and outpatient substance abuse therapy.

WHAT DO THESE TWO HAVE IN COMMON?

No matter where or when, just one hit, one bump, or one pill could be laced with a deadly dose of fentanyl. More than 50x stronger than morphine, fentanyl has quadrupled overdose deaths in East Baton Rouge Parish. Just 2 mg (0.0004 tsp) of fentanyl will end your life.

Do you know what’s in your drugs? The difference is life or death.
