Making a difference
United Way is focused on meeting the needs of the MOST vulnerable in our community – seniors and children living with low income, people who might be struggling with mental health issues, neighbourhoods where we have growing poverty. United Way is investing in those strategies that the community feels are really important and where gaps exist in this critical work, based on research and community input.
United Way’s role in the community is that we are able to work with and support organizations to ensure that they are delivering services in an effective and efficient way. We are able to ensure, not only that the funds and support are going where they are needed, but that the services are delivered in a way that achieves positive, lasting change in the community.
