COVID- 19 Community Response Fund

In the face of this health crisis, we are amazed by the acts of kindness we are seeing across Oxford County. This is a community that has come together. We know that in Oxford, many people could not, and cannot, afford to adequately prepare for how COVID-19 is affecting their family. Those who already face barriers – things like food insecurity, poverty, homelessness and social isolation – need even more support during this time. With the support of local agencies and services, we are working to support efforts that help to serve the most vulnerable in our community. All funds will remain in Oxford to help us continue to support front line agencies as they help our community during this crisis and prepare for better days ahead.

We will Focus on:

Basic needs – ensuring people have access to life’s essentials, such as food Capacity for community services – so community partners can deliver vital local work
Mental health supports– enabling access to counselling, peer supports and system navigation services that benefit us all

Thank you for showing your Local Love. Together we will get through this!

*Funds raised through United Way Oxford’s COVID-19 Community Response Fund will be disbursed to local organizations as they support urgent identified immediate community needs as well as to provide mid-term supports as required. Any unused COVID-19 Community Response funding will be utilized as part of United Way’s on-going support to programs that support people living in poverty, ensuring access to local mental health supports and providing services for children and youth.
