Not everyone will have a home for the holidays.


Housing insecurity, lack of affordability, and evictions have increased in our community over the last year. Together we can provide hope and support to those facing a cold winter and housing uncertainty.

From December 13 – 31, support United Way Waterloo Region Communities’ Preventing Homelessness fund, and your gift will be matched to double your impact this holiday season.

$1 = $2

Your gift will be matched!

Thanks to an anonymous donor between Dec 13 and 31, donations given to our Preventing Homelessness Fund will be matched for double the impact!

Please give to support programs like...

Supportive housing & alternative housing options

Emergency shelter for women & children, youth, and men

Street outreach

Nutritious meals

Eviction prevention supports

Drop in spaces & wrap around services for at risk youth

Where will my donation go?

Your donation this holiday season will support programs and services across Waterloo Region working every day to help people who are homeless or are at risk of becoming homeless.
