United Way Needs and Priorities

United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador's objective is simple: by utilizing a large community of volunteers, it aims to efficiently raise a significant amount of money and direct it to charities focused on the following focus areas.

  • From poverty to possibility – Moving people out of poverty and meeting basic human needs (ex: food, shelter and jobs).

  • Healthy people, strong communities – Improving access to social and health related support services, supporting resident and community engagement, and supporting community integration and settlement.

  • All that kids can be – Focused on improving access to early childhood learning and development programs, helping kids do well at school and complete high school, and making the healthy transition into adulthood and post-secondary education.
