An award-winning non-profit, SMHA has taken on social and economic issues like poverty, racism and sexism for the past 50 years. Their mission is to build strong, healthy and prosperous communities in rural Louisiana through advocacy and activism.

Our digitization efforts have helped preserve SMHA’s legacy. Even odd-sized documents and notes on napkins are scanned and indexed. Now SMHA can pursue their dream to give the documents to an institute dedicated to educating undergraduate women for leadership in the 21st century.
