The real work of United Way-Seeing is Believing

“I was shocked to discover how many people are falling through the cracks…you just assume there’s a system in place for everyone”- Seeing is Believing participant, October 2017

 

It’s a question we hear quite often.  “How does United Way work?”

And we are more than happy to answer it.   Over the years we have found it to be very helpful to host “Seeing is Believing” tours.

These tours allow you to see, up close, the “on the ground” efforts underway to create a community where poverty has no power.

You’ll have the opportunity to speak with some of our agency partners on the work they do, and how their connection with United Way Waterloo Region Communities makes a real difference.    As well, you’ll be learning alongside other people, who are every bit as intrigued about how they can help the 1 in 10 people in our region who live beneath the low income threshold.

We run Seeing is Believing tours at all times of the year, and we would love to have you join us.   Our events are usually scheduled from 6 to 7:30 PM –a light dinner will be provided.

We’re working on a new schedule of Seeing is Believing tours.    We’ll have that out to you as soon as possible.
