We Help Change Lives.

The Alberta Northwest Region is our home.  Our community.  Together, we help to improve the lives of the most vulnerable in our communities.

We Understand Local Needs

United Way Alberta Northwest helps to give everyone in our communities a chance by investing in three focus areas and working together with funded partners, government agencies and community organizations.

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.


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.

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.
