United Way North Okanagan Columbia Shuswap has been supporting communities throughout our region since 1961. United Way’s mission is “To improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action.”
Our work is focused in three areas:
- From poverty to possibility – providing opportunities for individuals to move out of poverty and thrive.
- All that kids can be – providing opportunities for children and youth to reach their full potential.
- Strong communities – supporting people and communities to be healthy and strong so they are able to respond to both challenges and opportunities.
Our goals are to have healthy, caring, inclusive communities and increase our community’s capacity to address social issues.
