Complex issues require a coordinated response.
People accessing United Way funded programs are among us every day – they could be your co-workers, neighbours, friends or extended family members. When in crisis, they often require more than service to get the assistance they need.
At United Way, our focus is to ensure our community can access a strong and stable network of services at all times. We support local agencies, programs and services with sustained, long-term funding – and we work closely with community partners to collectively address social issues facing our community. We have also partnered with bc211 to provide a confidential telephone, texting and online referral service connecting individuals to hundreds of community, social and government services.
When you support United Way, you are helping to ensure a continuum of services is available at all times for individuals, families, seniors, children and youth in neighbourhoods near you. Read our Community Investment Directory to learn more about the programs and services we fund.
One single social service can rarely meet all of an individual’s needs, but by giving to United Way you can support a network of services with specialized resources for all ages, backgrounds, and abilities. Please donate today.
