As we move through our community impact journey, United Way has identified key areas in which we will focus our efforts and resources. These areas are the foundation for our future and will help to create opportunities for a better life for everyone.
From poverty to possibility
Poverty is a far-reaching, complex issue. It is also a lasting one. Once in the cycle of poverty, it is extremely difficult to overcome and can continue for generations. United Way works with partners to ensure that people have access to help when they need it most.
Healthy people, strong communities
To have a strong community, you need to have healthy individuals, families and neighbourhoods. United Way is working to improve access to social and health-related services while investing in programs that make a positive difference both today and long-term.
All that kids can be
Children and youth are the future of our community. United Way funded programs and services provide access to development, literacy, recreation, mentoring, nourishment and after-school programs that provide our youngest citizens with the opportunity to develop skills, abilities, interests and self-confidence.
