United In One Goal
Helping Those In Need
LOCAL EXPERTISE IN HEALTH AND SOCIAL NEEDS
Since 1958, United Way Hastings & Prince Edward has been working in tandem with community, business, government and health and social services. Through research, consultation and experience, we know where the need is greatest in each community – and we invest our efforts and your donations where they will have the greatest results.
WE BRING PEOPLE TOGETHER
We make sure the right people, organizations and skills are at the table to solve the tough problems. We work together with nonprofits, government, community agencies, corporate partners, labour and donors to improve lives across Canada. Our allocations process is volunteer driven, and creates best case scenarios for donor impact. We care about our community as do you, and we work with you to Improve Lives Locally in this 100% Local movement.
WE ADDRESS ROOT CAUSES
While a band-aid fix may help in the short-term, we also aim to create lasting change. By learning more about the factors that influence issues like poverty, we can tackle them early and develop long-term solutions as part of a larger network of over 70 programs. Our programs and partners are providing essential health and social services to those most vulnerable right her in Hastings & Prince Edward. We can not do it without you – our partners. Together we are stronger.
