Changing The Power Of Poverty
1 in 10 people in Waterloo Region live in poverty. That’s more than 50,000 individuals. Poverty is a complex issue, intertwined with homelessness, education, food insecurity, family dynamics and more.
It takes far more than one agency or organization to make a real impact.
Through your support, we collaborate with local agencies and businesses, governments and involved citizens to make lasting change, and provide the building blocks necessary for everyone to fully participate in everything Waterloo Region has to offer.
United Way holds a unique position to work as an agent of change, with deep roots across all those platforms. We fundraise locally, and invest in our local communities in concert with our partners.
