United Way connects people to the opportunities they need to build a better life.
Our work begins with understanding our community. We talked with individuals about their hopes and aspirations; for themselves, their families, friends, and community. We also asked them about the barriers they faced. We consulted local experts to share this feedback and to see where there was readiness and opportunity for change in Oxford County. By partnering with local agencies, volunteers, government and donors we are able to create a brighter future and connect people to the supports they need.
FROM POVERTY TO POSSIBILITY
Vital community services work to ensure that everyone has access to local supports and programs that help meet the basic necessities of life.
Poverty is complex. The burden is profound.
Happy and healthy lives can be out of reach for some. People living in poverty, seniors and those facing mental health issues may not always get the help they need.
Inclusive and supported communities connect and strengthen all Oxford County residents.
ALL THAT KIDS CAN BE
Empowering children and youth is one of the most powerful ways to address the root causes of social challenges.
