Taking Action on Housing & Homelessness

Housing is a fundamental need. It provides the foundation for individual health & wellbeing, developing positive social interactions and being engaged in your community. No one can do this without safe, appropriate housing. Give to provide supports like critical emergency shelter, street level outreach, and prevention efforts that reduce evictions and alleviate homelessness.

Increasing Food Security

Not having enough healthy food to eat on a regular basis can have detrimental effects on your life as well as your ability to function at your best. Give to provide supports like emergency food, increasing access to fresh and healthy food, after school, weekend and summer school food, community meals, and food preparation programs.

Providing Essential Life Skills & Supports

Not everyone has access to the opportunities that build critical life skills (basic literacy, numeracy, and computer skills) or the assistive technology needed to be able to participate fully in daily life. Give to provide supports like homework help and tutoring, technological skill training, literacy training, and assistive devices for seniors and people living with disabilities. 

Empowering Safety & Wellbeing

Safety and wellbeing is as much a basic need as shelter or food. Give to support programs and services like safe spaces and warm meals for families escaping domestic violence, refugee and immigration supports, supports for survivors of sexual assault, culturally sensitive family and child counselling, and advocacy for change within our community. 

Supporting Children & Youth

The pandemic has taken a toll on the children and youth in our community. Donations support mental health, physical safety and overall health and wellbeing of our community’s children and youth through programs like age specific counselling, mentorship programs, homework help and tutoring, bullying prevention, community centre spaces, and leadership and volunteer opportunities. 

Driving Innovation

Innovative solutions are needed to move our local non-profit sector forward, to be as effective, efficient, and impactful as possible. Donations will help meet the complex needs of our community by solving problems through technology, building capacity, and bringing new programs and partnerships to life to move our community forward.

Building Social Connections

A lack of opportunities for connection, whether due to the pandemic, or pre-existing barriers, affects our ability to maintain a strong support system and can diminish our quality of life.  Donations support opportunities for people to connect and reduce isolation and loneliness through programs and services like neighbourhood community development, volunteering, and senior supports. 

Advancing Equity

Not all community members have equitable access to available opportunities. This is because of language, available resources, experiences with systemic discrimination, historical trauma, and other factors. Help support opportunities geared to where people are through grassroots neighbourhood development programs, culturally appropriate food and family supports, mental health services and more. 

Strengthening Community Leadership

A healthy, vibrant community depends on building strong leaders and a robust network of services and supports. Giving ensures that we build the capabilities of our leaders (present and future), including young people, and those who have been marginalized; support volunteerism; and build capacity and resiliency in our local non-profit sector. 

Advocating for Mental Health

Sudden job loss, grief, or other trauma can take a major toll on anyone. Donations help support anyone who needs crisis supports, like counselling. It also helps address wait lists that have become much longer in recent years, so that those who need the support can get it in a timely manner. 

United Way Brant

Do you wish to support United Way Brant? We will happily forward your gift. There are no minimum amounts or fees to do this. We appreciate any support you can provide to the United Way network of agencies in communities all across Canada.

Poverty

We love where we live but poverty is hurting our community. Taking a stand against poverty means starting with housing - like providing safe shelter or eviction prevention. It also means addressing food availability, and building skills for success like adult literacy and afterschool programs. 

Climate Change

Climate change is inextricably linked to poverty, hunger, and overall health. The wealthier you are the more you can weather the effects of climate change. Help support programs to reduce the environmental impact of food waste and increase food security, and create equitable access to land for marginalized communities. 

Conestoga College

Did you know that donations to the United Way campaign can be designated to a charity of your choice? We invite you to consider designating your donation to a Conestoga program or a student award fund.

Basic Needs Fund

You can help people in this community access basic and essential needs that many of us take for granted. Whether in need of a place to stay safe and warm, a meal to fill a tummy, training to access employment, or transportation to attend personal appointments, everyone in this community deserves support. United Way WRC supported programs are there to help.

Ending Isolation Fund

Poverty is the root cause of chronic loneliness, isolation, and feelings of disconnect. Your gift will be directed to programs and services that improve access to supports and create strong, cohesive neighbourhoods that help people in times of need. Examples include: referral services, senior's supports, neighbourhood led activities, and leadership development.

General Community Fund

Can’t decide what to give to? Consider the United Way General Community Fund. Your gift will go to many agencies working tirelessly in the areas of mental health, food security, and social isolation. Examples include: supports for those at-risk of homelessness, access to food, literacy and training, crisis supports, information referral, collaborative networks, and so much more. For more information, and to see which agencies we fund, visit our website. Without you, there would be no way.
