Improving Lives. Building Community.
United Way works in a coordinated way with local organizations across all sectors to address significant needs across Waterloo Region communities – a successful transition of vulnerable youth to adulthood; a successful transition to a sustainable life for those in poverty; and, a sense of community and participation in neighbourhoods. By collaborating with local agencies and businesses, donors, governments, labour, neighbourhood residents and other stakeholders, we can make lasting change.
We tackle difficult issues by identifying root causes and developing strategies. Then we bring together the network of services, build the capacity of our not-for-profit partners, and provide the support needed to get the job done. And we measure the results to ensure we are on the right track.
