What are we doing about it?
Every year, United Way investments help tens of thousands of individuals improve their situations and begin to advocate for themselves and their communities. We support programs that increase a person’s employability, housing stability to remain housed and provide healthy food and other basic necessities.
If we want to continue to lift local people out of poverty and do better than normal, it means investing in prevention and education to stop the cycle of poverty in Niagara. When someone’s finances begin to suffer, it can lead to homelessness, mental health issues and social isolation. Everyone deserves to feel included, to experience equity and to contribute to their community. Together, let’s ensure no vulnerable person is left behind.
