We fight local poverty, in all its forms

A lack of money. A lack of opportunities, poverty is a big and complex issue that takes many forms. And it threatens the well-being of our entire region, robbing too many people of their potential: kids, youth, seniors, newcomers alike. As the backbone of a community-wide network of agencies and programs, and supported by in-depth research and many strategic partnerships, our goal at United Way is to change that.

We help to fight poverty by:

  • ensuring access to a broad range of programs and services for everyone, close to home
  • building connections to help people work together, developing solutions to local issues that affect them
  • creating opportunities that improve people’s social and economic futures
  • inviting you to be the bedrock—and an active agent—of change in our community

Imagine living in a region where 100% of people experiencing poverty can break free and triumph. It begins with each and every one of us—as part of the Uprising of Care.
