We need you on the frontlines
United Way funds a network of programs and services working on the front lines. Local experts from agency partners like Unity Project and Youth Opportunities Unlimited have the training and expertise to support people through their barriers and help them build a better life.
United Way is hyper-focused on addressing these #UNIGNORABLE issues and poverty, homelessness and addiction are connected.
It’s #UNIGNORABLE that that we see the faces of poverty and homelessness each day. There are individuals sleeping on our streets. Social services are struggling to keep up, and winter is coming.
Jeff from Youth Opportunities Unlimited said that his organization served over 2,000 young people last year. Of those, 840 accessed things like hygiene, basic needs supplies and meals. Ben from Unity Project shared that more than 300 people are currently sleeping in one of London’s four emergency shelters each night. Even more are sleeping on couches, in barns, or on the streets.
We need you on the frontlines.
Last year, United Way funded programs helped over 100,000 local people when they needed it most. That’s more than one in five of us getting support to overcome barriers and find opportunity right here at home.
But we can’t do it without you. Local people are still sleeping in shelters and on our streets. Addiction still hurts members of our community. You can help us change this.
Your donation stays 100% local and is used to help the experts provide the resources and tools they need to support people in need and help them build a better life.
Yes! I want to help local people overcome poverty, homelessness and addiction.
