United Way is working to create a better region for everyone. We are creating change that gets to the heart of the matter. Our mission is to improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.

United Way believes in working collectively- partners play an important role in making our community stronger. We partner with all areas and groups of our community from agencies, community groups, government to the private sector.

United Way has three focus areas to help guide its work and investments.

In 2016 United Way is investing in 26 agencies (28 programs) as well as several of its own initiatives. All agencies that receive funding from United Way must be Registered Charities with CRA.
