What We Do

For those facing mental health challenges, the lack of access and support mean a higher risk of falling into poverty.

Navigating social services and community resource systems can be difficult and overwhelming, especially for someone who is already experiencing the stressors of poverty. It can be challenging to know what help is available, and how to access it.

Thanks to United Way supporters, in 2021:

  • 20,466 community members attended mental health education sessions.
  • 20,466 individuals facing mental health challenges received timely counselling.
  • 2,896 people who experienced domestic violence received caring supports.
  • 90,786 people were connected to needed services by skilled staff.
