No one person or organization can solve our communities’ biggest problems alone. By leveraging the power of our movement, we can make lasting change. And that’s what you do with United Way of the Alberta Capital Region through every donation or moment of your time.

You are making a real difference in people’s lives. Thanks to your generosity, we raised over $25 million to strengthen our community, helping more than 257,000 people through a United Way initiative or funded program.

By coming together, we are building strong and vibrant communities where no one is left behind.

Thank you for doing local good.

A Message from the Chair of the Board and the President & CEO

Todd Gilchrist and Rob Yager

Thank you for making a difference and believing in what we do. You should feel proud of all we’ve done together this year.
So many of our friends and neighbours are still feeling the ripple effects of the pandemic: job losses, illness, the rising cost of living, and grief. But we’ve seen time and again how the Edmonton region is a place where we all want to roll up our sleeves to change things for the better, and this past year was no different.

We know that women and gender-diverse people are disproportionately experiencing poverty. That’s why last year we launched our local Women United – a global movement of changemakers passionate about helping women and girls succeed and thrive. Locally, more than 670 people have joined Women United and have raised over half a million dollars to go specifically to United Way initiative and funded programs that support women’s equity and success.

2022 was also a special year as we marked the milestone anniversary of United Way’s Empower U program. Over the last 10 years, nearly 2,000 people here in the Alberta Capital Region have completed this financial empowerment course to build stronger, more financially secure futures for themselves and their families. We’re grateful for the collaboration of our agency partners and funders to make this generational impact possible. This is an amazing example of how many people and sectors are working to create lasting change.

More people than ever are turning to 211 Alberta. In addition to the support from our donors, we are grateful for recent provincial and federal government investments in this critical social infrastructure to help improve and simplify what can be a complex and confusing system. These investments mean that when someone reaches out during one of the hardest, most stressful moments of their life, a caring and compassionate expert will be there to help.

We are feeling energized by this movement and ready to take on some of the biggest challenges facing our community. Together, we are sending a powerful message to those in our community who are struggling: you are not alone.

United Way of the Alberta Capital Region

Long-term social change depends on our community uniting to address the root causes of complex social issues. United Way works collaboratively across the social services sector, identifying pressing community needs and implementing the most impactful solutions.

By strengthening mental health and connection and creating equitable opportunities for education and financial stability, United Way and our supporters are creating resilient, connected, and thriving communities where no one is left behind.

When you join United Way, you are an important part of a movement of changemakers who share your social purpose and want the same things for our community. Together, your actions and resources multiply your impact right here at home.

More than 257,000 people who were struggling received supports through a United Way funded program in 2022. But the impact you’ve had on our community goes beyond a statistic in an annual report. These positive ripple effects are empowering people to make lasting, multi-generational change.

2,161 child development support packages were distributed through The Kid Kit®.

The Kid Kit® is a powerful tool that helps families build stronger relationships while also guiding their child’s development. In turn, children are better prepared for starting school with a strong foundation for learning.

“Once I introduced The Kid Kit and we went through the cards and materials, and I shared about the wonderful eye contact and interactions that were being shared between the caregiver and child, the parent started to really pay attention to these moments. They seemed so proud of the moments they were able to create with a few simple materials and for those few moments, everything else seemed to melt away—even if just for a short time!”

— Agency Practitioner

5,430 individuals received early learning and parenting supports.

One United Way-funded program that provides early learning and parenting supports is Norwood Centre’s Parent Respite program. There, Alicia accessed drop-in childcare so she could go to nursing school, while her son, Ace, could socialize with other kids and access quality early-childhood education.

“We’re very well put together, I would say, for a single [parent] family. If I didn’t have Norwood, I wouldn’t be where I’m at today because I wouldn’t have had those resources to be able to get out of my situation.”

— Alicia, Parent

In the 2021-22 school year, 2,839 students and their families had access to All in for Youth services, which fosters student success at 8 Edmonton schools.

All in for Youth removes barriers to learning, helping students and families in many ways, including mentorship, student success coaching, mental health therapy, out-of-school time group programming, school nutrition program, and in-home family support.

“Because of this support, I was able to get this job where I am right now. I got support for my clothes, my child’s school stuff, books, stationery, and school snacks at the same time, every Friday…They’re always there to provide.”

— Caregiver

16,289 backpacks were distributed to local students through Tools for School.

For almost thirty years, Tools for School has helped provide backpacks full of school supplies to vulnerable students, reducing one known barrier preventing children from successfully participating in school.

“To those donating or volunteering with Tools for School: I wish you could see the impact these backpacks have for our students. I wish you could see the smiles on their faces. I wish you could see how they stand tall, with their shoulders back, knowing they have the supplies they need to be successful. They’re going to school prepared, and they aren’t worried about having to put up their hand to say they don’t have a pencil. Tools for School gives them that dignity. Students are very proud of that.”

— Karen Fabris, Manager at Edmonton Catholic School Division’s One World…One Centre.

18 schools participated in Make your Mark,  where more than 800 students created and delivered projects to support people in need in the Edmonton region.

Presented by Dentons, Make your Mark is a one-of-a-kind program that fosters leadership skills in students from Kindergarten through Grade 12 as they create and deliver projects to support people in need in the Edmonton region.

“I loved the Make your Mark project because it had modules for us to work through to build awareness and teach students about poverty in their own communities.”

— Amanda Harasam, Austin O’Brien High School teacher.

479,000 retail grade menstrual pads were donated by Procter & Gamble to provide barrier-free access to menstrual products in schools across Alberta through United Way’s Period Promise.

Period Promise is devoted to making fundamental change and bringing menstrual equity to our schools. Funded by the Government of Alberta, and with product sponsorship from Procter & Gamble, United Ways across the province are joining together for a one-year project to provide free menstrual products in 50 Alberta schools.

“Students have the ability to grab what they need, when they need it. [Period Promise’s school program] increases their independence and autonomy because they are able to get what [products] they need, without having to wait for a good time to ask an adult.”

— Teacher

223 participants completed more than 10 sessions of Empower U, a United Way initiative that combines financial literacy programs with a 1:1 matched savings component.

After coming to Canada as a Syrian refugee, Moumenah took part in an Empower U course through Islamic Family & Social Services Association to build her financial confidence and navigate the Canadian banking system. Moumenah purchased a sewing machine to pursue her creative passions and has since found a sewing job that she loves.

“For me, Empower U wasn’t just about finance, it was about the whole lifestyle here in Canada. It has helped us put food on our table here in Canada and helped us learn how to live and survive here…We are so grateful and excited for the future.”

—  Moumenah

In 2022, 211 Alberta received nearly 89,000 calls from individuals throughout the province seeking support.

Our United Way is a proud founding partner of 211 Alberta, providing funding and support for the program, and working to make its services available to all Albertans. 211 Alberta helps Albertans quickly and easily navigate resources to meet their needs.

In times of disaster, including the current wildfire situation, 211’s highly trained specialists step up to support those who have been displaced or otherwise impacted by the disaster, aids in recovery efforts, and contributes valuable insights on emerging and unmet needs in the community.

211 Alberta specialist

31,406 people were served by agencies outside Edmonton, addressing the unique and diverse needs in mid-sized cities and rural-urban communities in the Alberta Capital Region.

Nevaeh attends an alternative school outreach program, and her class took part in the United Way-funded Community Kitchen Program through Alberta Parenting for the Future Association in Stony Plain. The Community Kitchen not only teaches valuable life skills, but it offers healthy, prepared meals to low-income families in the community alleviating the pressure of food insecurity.

“It really helps bring all the kids together to do something really fun and meaningful, to be able to be a leader. We always give at least half of what we make to the Connection Centre [to be] given back to the community, and that does make me feel really good about myself, that I am able to do that.”

— Nevaeh

6,690 winter items were given to those in need through Coats for Kids and Families.

Coats for Kids & Families aims to ensure families and individuals with limited resources have access to the proper winter outerwear needed for our cold Edmonton and area winters.

“United Way and Coats for Kids and Families are filling a niche that we can’t fill ourselves — that collaboration between non-profits and United Way is crucial. I thank everybody who takes the time to donate winter gear to Coats for Kids and Families because it is a vital service for Edmonton.”

— Shari-Lynne Gidyk, Executive Director at Family Futures Resource Network

22,726 agency staff and volunteers were supported to effectively evaluate programs, collaborate on efforts, and research community needs and evidence-based solutions.

We work collaboratively across the social services sector, identifying pressing community needs, and convening partnerships across the region to implement solutions with greatest impact. Local charities and non-profits are feeling increased pressure and requests for help as the need in our community also grows. United Way provides funding, capacity support, in-kind donations and more, so local agencies can focus on delivering much-needed programs and services.

“United Way strengthens our work by providing that additional funding so we can provide the highest quality childcare program possible. Every child, every family, deserves the right to quality care. When we have access to extra funding, we can provide the best staff, the best program, the best equipment.”

— Kathy Burgett, program director for Norwood Family Resource Centre.

Our 2022 Campaign Success

Thanks to the generosity of volunteers and donors like you, we raised over $25 million to strengthen our community.

Looking to the Future

Building strong and vibrant communities where no one is left behind.

With over 80 years of experience, United Way of the Alberta Capital Region is deeply connected to this community and its support systems. To ensure that we continue to address immediate community needs as well as tackle complex social issues, United Way’s approach has evolved over time. We change lives by engaging passionate changemakers, investing in effective programs and services, and working in partnership with the system of agencies to create long-term solutions.

A strong and vibrant community is better equipped to respond to new and urgent needs and challenges. We are focused on two critical areas that build community resilience: strengthening mental health and creating equitable opportunities for education and financial security. These build the foundation of a strong community that can tackle any challenge.

Thank you for your ongoing support of our United Way, and our community. Together, we can ensure that no one in our community is left behind.

Let’s Change Lives Together.
