Community Investment Areas
United Way Alberta Northwest partners with all areas of the community to address root causes of social issues and have the greatest impact. Learn more about our three focus areas – poverty, kids, and communities:
FROM POVERTY TO POSSIBILITY
Without the basic necessities, life becomes a struggle to survive. We invest in programs and initiatives that get homeless youth off the streets for good, help the under-employed or unemployed find jobs that match their skills, and give those who are struggling employment opportunities and a sense of belonging to their community.
ALL THAT KIDS CAN BE
Due to circumstances beyond their control, many kids need help to develop the skills to succeed in school and life. We support programs that ensure children are ready to learn. We invest in programs and initiatives like homework clubs, summer camps, and after-school programs that allow at-risk kids to grow and succeed.
HEALTHY PEOPLE, STRONG COMMUNITIES
Seniors, people living in poverty, and those facing mental health issues may not always get the help they need to live happy, healthy lives. We invest in programs and initiatives that lead to healthier people and stronger communities.
TOOLS FOR SCHOOL
Providing necessary school supplies for children of all ages who are in need of tools to help them succeed in school.
