Our Impact

United Way Guelph Wellington Dufferin supports a network of local programs that help thousands of people in our community on their journey to a better quality of life.

5 Areas of Impact

We are working to build impact in 5 areas:

1. Resilience in children and youth through emotional well-being.

Helping to prevent and mitigate adverse childhood experiences is both urgent and foundational to lifelong potential.

2. Belonging, inclusion, and connection to support our community.

Isolation, mental health, and informal and formal support are critical issues coming out of the pandemic.

3. Dedicated investment for equity-seeking and rights-seeking groups.

Real, tangible barriers to resources and belonging in our communities persist.

4. Aligned collaborative support for food, housing, and financial security.

Individuals and families need comprehensive opportunities to stabilize, recover, and build their futures.

5. Focused investment and presence in rural communities.

Support that is responsive to their unique needs.
