Equity and Inclusion

Our mission at United Way is to mobilize the caring power of communities to advance the common good. We envision inclusive, resilient and equitable communities. We engage donors, advocates, volunteers and partners to join us to ensure that every person in every community has access to a quality education including the knowledge, skills and training they need to attain jobs that pay good wages, and the ability to live a healthy, safe life.

For too many individuals and families, access to a better life remains elusive. To achieve our vision, we must understand and address the underlying factors that impede progress. By challenging practices based on racism, sexism and other historical and current forms of discrimination, we can create more inclusive communities and equitable outcomes. We must continue to be a leader in the fight for equity and strive to create communities where everyone has the resources, opportunities and support they need to thrive.

United Way of Haldimand and Norfolk will continue to embrace an explicit equity lens and know, that we succeed, when the communities we serve succeed.
