Our Community

At Barriere, we celebrate our legacy of service, quality and lasting relationships. Inspired by nearly 70 years of service, we continue to dedicate ourselves to the community through civic investments, charitable giving, and as vehicles for the sustained growth of Southeastern Louisiana and the Gulf South region.

From helping underprivileged families celebrate a brighter Christmas, to contributing to the United Way, to coordinating the voluntary construction of a Habitat for Humanity house, Barriere people remain committed to serving the communities of southeast Louisiana.

Following the 2016 devastating flooding in the Baton Rouge and Lafayette areas, Barriere owners and employees put our culture of commitment and service to work directly in places our employees, customers, vendors and partners called home. In response to this tragedy, Barriere implemented a comprehensive plan to help employees who lost their homes, cars and belongings, and to help speed their recovery and return to normalcy.

Through a partnership with the Baton Rouge Area Foundation (BRAF) Barriere created an Employee Assistance Fund which awarded grants to full-time employees and retirees in-need. Barriere also opened donations to all employees and vendors, who were looking to give back and make their own mark on the rebuilding process.

These initiatives serve as a progressive model for how Barriere will respond and assist employees and stakeholders in-need in the future, while further strengthening the Barriere culture that makes us an employer, partner and service provider of choice for Louisiana and the central Gulf Coast.
