By supporting United Way, you have the ability to change the lives of local families and individuals struggling in poverty, and help prevent others from falling into it.
Just like a financial investment that grows, you want to see your community grow and prosper. This is exactly how your contribution to United Way is treated – like a life- changing investment that generates community impact.
United Way has the largest network of funded partners in the region – 50+ social sector partners delivering 100+ programs and services. This means your donation goes farther and wider than any other charitable investment you can make.
United Way investments support community members in three focus areas:
- Break the Cycle – Ensuring children succeed through the school years. (Examples include: parenting supports, in-school nutrition, mentoring, school supplies, family counselling.)
- Lift People Out – Helping people build job skills and financial stability. (Examples include: job and skills training, counselling, financial literacy training.)
- Provide a Safety Net – Supporting basic needs and personal well-being. (Examples include: food and housing supports, family therapy, distress line support, shelters, addictions counselling.)
United Way also helps to Build Community Capacity by supporting research, evaluation and collaboration.
