Every day, people in our communities struggle to build better lives for themselves and their families. These challenges are fueled by serious social and economic barriers including poverty, youth unemployment and community decline, among others, making it remarkably difficult to get ahead.
United Way is committed to helping people and families across Canada build better lives—both today and tomorrow. We do this by moving people from poverty to possibility, helping kids be all they can be, and building strong and healthy communities.
Social and economic challenges like poverty, youth unemployment and isolation are issues that affect all of us. They widen gaps between those who are doing well financially and those who are not, and threaten the strong social fabric that is vital to healthy, connected communities.
When you support United Way, you’re helping to build a strong social safety net for Canadians in communities across the country. This means that people have access to all the supports they need the most, when and where they need them.
