Audience Engagement

Who we help

Poverty takes a tremendous toll on our neighbours and economy and holds our community back from reaching its full potential. People experiencing poverty often face complex barriers. United Way collaborates on system-wide solutions to address immediate needs and provide long-term wrap-around supports. Through this holistic approach we can truly empower individuals and families to make lasting change in their lives.

Moumenah's Story

After coming to Canada as a Syrian refugee, Moumenah took part in an Empower U course at Islamic Family to better understand finances in Canada. Empower U is a United Way program that provides participants with financial literacy training and a matched savings program.

Nevaeh's Story

How we help

Built on over 80 years of experience, United Way’s experts deeply know this community and its support systems – and what it needs most. We bring together community members, social agencies, schools, organizations, and governments to collaborate and deliver local programs and services addressing the root causes of poverty. Working together, we minimize duplication and deliver larger scale impacts and lasting change.
