United Way of Chatham-Kent is a registered Canadian charitable organization that works to maximize volunteer, financial, program and agency resources to respond to the increasingly complex issues and needs that exist and are emerging in Chatham-Kent. We are a community of people with a common goal of caring.


Building on deep local knowledge and relationships, we inspire individuals, networks, and organizations to work together in making Chatham-Kent the home we all want it to be.


We identify the root causes of our community’s most complex challenges and we work together to find solutions for one reason and one reason only, Nobody Left Behind.
