Mission: Empower everyone to improve lives and build strong communities.
We love where we live, but issues like food insecurity, social isolation and mental health are hurting our communities.
Your generosity powers United Way’s work in the Durham Region. It allows us to tackle the issues relating to poverty and disadvantage which are burdensome on individuals and suppress human potential.
When you show your local love for community, you’re helping create pathways out of poverty so that everyone can thrive.
The United Way invests in programs that have a wide range of impact. These programs support thousands of local residents, helping them when they need it the most.
