Improving Lives Across Haldimand and Norfolk

The best thing we can do in a crisis is to look after each other. United Way has one goal in mind–to improve lives across Haldimand and Norfolk. With your support, our local United Way works to tackle the tough problems. In a crisis, we work rapidly with front-line agencies and our local governments to uncover the greatest needs and organize to achieve the greatest impact.

Our communities of Haldimand and Norfolk are made up of resilient and caring people. But we know that many people in our communities do not have the support system around them to prepare for COVID-19. Those who already face barriers, like poverty, homelessness and mental-illness, need even more help during this crisis. And the need continues to evolve.
