Our Impact

How our work is changing the face of Louisiana.

Each year, KLB collects and publishes data from our programs, affiliate organizations and grant recipients. This is the only data collection of its type, and it reflects the outcomes of the efforts of thousands of citizen groups, volunteers and participants across 24 parishes throughout the state. The Impact Card highlights a few of the efforts we are most proud of and below you will find more detailed categories.
