Improving Neighbourhood Health and Personal Wellbeing

Making Halton and Hamilton a great place for everyone.

Health and well-being can be influenced by where people live. The strength, resiliency and health of neighbourhoods have a major impact on residents’ current and future quality of life. United Way supports recreation, parenting, social and human service programs that provide the tools, confidence and supports needed to create vital communities. We also seek input from the residents through conversations and consultation in order to deepen our understanding of issues, promote action and strengthen neighbourhoods.

How We’re Changing Lives

We invest in programs that build skills for independent living, counselling for mental health issues, programs that allow people to feel connected, and research to understand root causes.
