Helping the most vulnerable in our communities.

In March 2020, the World Health Organization declared the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) a pandemic.

But it was in the weeks before that public health agencies, social services agencies, and United Way Halton & Hamilton  gathered to see how we could support those most in need.


Since then, grassroots groups have formed. Neighbours are helping neighbours. Volunteers are stepping up.
Everyone has an important role to play.

When you give to United Way, you will help provide:



Ensure people have access to life’s essentials, such as food.


for Seniors 

Ensure that while vulnerable people are isolated, they are also supported. 

Capacity for

Community Services

Ensure that community partners can continue to do their vital work.

Mental Health


Enable crisis lines and system navigation services.
As the situation changes, United Way will work with our community partners to adapt.

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) Procurement Program

Front line social service providers are struggling to procure PPE. This program makes quality PPE more affordable and available to agencies so they can keep their staff and community safe.
