Too many people in Oxford have their belongings in a bag and only the clothes on their backs. Poverty is complex. Whether a child grows up knowing nothing different, or an individual’s life changes in a moment, we can never know the daily struggle unless we have lived in this person’s shoes. United Way Oxford works to reduce the stigma associated with poverty and gain a better understanding of the number of youth, adults and families living in these conditions in Oxford.
How does United Way Oxford help? We focus our work on locally developed investment strategies that target strengthening employment readiness and helping to meet basic needs.
