Hey YYJ! You helped change 90,000 lives: 2019 Outcomes Report

Every day at the United Way of Greater Victoria, we work to create a better place for everyone who lives here. Every dollar of your donation stays in the Greater Victoria area, building stronger communities, helping kids succeed, and moving families out of poverty. This work is supported by YOU, our generous donors, who rely on us to invest their resources wisely, efficiently, and effectively.

When in crisis, people often require more than one service to get the assistance they need. At United Way, we ensure a continuum or network of social services is available for all in our community when and where they need it the most.

Helping one person can create tangible ripples of positive local impact. We partner with compassionate individuals to build a system of support that surrounds the person in need, making the greatest possible impact in Greater Victoria.

Our response to COVID-19

In just over a week after COVID-19 was declared a global pandemic, United Way Greater Victoria launched the Local Love in a Global Crisis fund to help our most vulnerable and our critically important social service sector. This pandemic has given us time to reflect both as a community, and as an organization, as to how better we can better support each other. The Local Love in a Global Crisis fund has galvanized donor support, government support – federal, provincial and municipal – and corporate sector support. To date, $1.2 million has been raised to provide relief to our community. We have said it once and we’ll say it again, we are #strongertogether. We are proud and honored to share to results we have been working on since March of 2020. Collectively, here’s how we took action to make a difference and responded during the first phase of the pandemic.
