United Way is a not-for-profit organization that partners with community members, businesses, labour and local agencies to create positive change in our community. What makes United Way unique is that we work at the local grass roots level to identify issues specific to our community, and raise funds for programs that work to address the underlying causes of these issues.
By supporting United Way, you can make an impact where you live, work and raise your family. Every year, United Way invests in over 100 programs and special initiatives to help our most vulnerable people overcome all types of challenges. We focus on these three priority areas:
From Poverty to Possibility
United Way is helping to meet the basic needs of our community’s most vulnerable people, giving everyone the opportunity to realize a better future.
All That Kids Can Be
United Way is giving children and youth the support they need to get a great start in life, do well in school, and reach their full potential.
United Way is creating vibrant neighbourhoods, where everyone experiences a sense of belonging and connection to one another.
Our goal is to create opportunities for everyone in our community and help them live better lives.
