Helping to Meet Basic Needs

In the thriving Alberta Capital Region, many families face challenges meeting basic needs. Issues like not having a safe home, enough food, or access to resources can deeply affect individuals’ health and well-being.

United Way, backed by 80 years of experience, alongside local partners, steps up to address these needs by providing access to food, emergency support, and housing assistance. Our aim with United Way? A community where everyone is supported and no one is left behind.

In 2022, 75,588 people accessed healthy meals or food hampers and 1,093 people received help to obtain or maintain housing.
