Help the most vulnerable as our region responds to the
United Way Alberta Northwest has created a partnership with local stakeholders in our community to support Grande Prairie and surrounding communities affected by COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Our preparations are designed to bring support to those who will potentially be directly or indirectly affected by the outbreak.
We will get through this together.
We know that in our region many people could not, and cannot, afford to adequately prepare for how COVID-19 is affecting their family. Many do not have supports, should they need to self-isolate. Those who already face barriers—things like poverty, homelessness and social isolation—need even more help during this time. The needs will continue to evolve. But, as you protect your family and those closest to you to keep them healthy, we urge you to think of those who may need the help of their neighbours.
Together we can keep our community strong.
Crisis is not unfamiliar to our region
In crisis situations, we work rapidly with front-line agencies, local municipalities and partners to uncover the greatest needs, and organize to achieve the greatest impact.
