Our Priorities

United Way is improving lives locally by moving people from poverty to possibility, helping kids be all they can be, and building strong and healthy communities.

Your Impact

Our region is a great place to live. But the divide between the rich and the poor is growing. Every day, people in our communities struggle to build better lives for themselves and their families.

These challenges are fueled by serious social and economic barriers including poverty, mental illness and social isolation, among others, making it remarkably difficult to get ahead.

Your Impact

COVID-19 Response and Recovery Plan 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, United Way developed a community-based, collaborative approach to mobilize funding and resources aimed at helping the social services sector and the clients they serve. After consulting with social and community service agencies and partnering with our local foundations and other funders, we identified emerging needs for people who live in poverty, seniors, and support for the front-line community service workers. 

By September 2020, United Way SIBC invested over $1.4M in relief funding and support to over 90 charities and community partners. For more information, click on the graphic below.

Behind every changed life is someone who made it happen.
