About Us

The Middleburg Institute influences change in public policies and programs that improve the lives of low-income communities in Louisiana and provides opportunities for families to gain access to public and private programs to build economic security over a lifetime.


At The Middleburg Institute,
we want to advance the economic, educational and social status of all low-income families and communities in Louisiana.


We believe every low-income family can be empowered to enhance their education, increase financial resources, and preserve their right to economic security.


Our goal is to strengthen and improve the ability to maintain and preserve assets by advancing public policies and programs that build economic security over a lifetime.

Our Work

We advocate for change of public policies that work against the economic wellbeing of low-income communities. We unite community members, stakeholders, grassroot activists, businesses and policy makers at a local, state and national level. Together, we empower educational attainment, build programmatic resources, and create lasting solutions that ensure a lifetime of social assurance.
