What We Do
Together, we change the odds.
In a community where everyone matters, we create opportunities for individuals and families to not just survive in our community, but to thrive and contribute.
Our Focus Areas
We're improving lives and empowering every family to succeed by uniting around education, economic prosperity and health - the cornerstones of a strong, equitable community.
We believe that a good quality of life can be achieved when people are educated, financially stable and healthy. And when people thrive, they can build — and sustain — a vibrant community. We couldn't do this work without you. Thank you for your support.
Our families and neighbourhoods are two of the most basic units of our lives. Strong communities are characterized by resilience, low incidence of violence, high economic security, connection with neighbours, and high involvement with community affairs. We are working together to ensure individuals, families, and neighbours have the resources to care for one another and solve local problems.
As the future of our community, and active citizens today, children and youth need to live and grow in a supportive, inclusive, and nurturing environment. It is important that they have the resources and opportunities to grow socially and emotionally, and feel included in our community. Investing now makes lasting and positive change in the lives of children and youth.
When people face tough times, or longer-term poverty, they lack access to necessities of life such as food, shelter, clothing, employment, and education. Many of our communities’ most vulnerable are families and individuals who simply can’t make ends meet. United Way is working with community partners to address the roots of economic challenges, and to break the cycle of poverty for future generations, while supporting fellow community members who need help now.
Our work unites donors who give, advocates who influence policy and volunteers who contribute their time and effort.
