COVID-19 is already having detrimental effects on youth in our communities: experts working with young people are seeing declining mental health, educational disparities, and increased substance use and misuse among the most vulnerable youth.
Many at-risk kids and youth are not reaching out for the help they need during the pandemic. Your donation will provide:
- Equipment and internet capabilities to ensure rural and vulnerable kids don’t fall behind
- Uninterrupted access to social services that are a lifeline for them
- Support for women and their families who are living in violent homes
Kids at risk in our communities need your support more than ever.
Show your local love and support the most vulnerable people at a time when it’s needed most.
Your donation is in good hands.
We invest your gift in smart, strategic ways, to ultimately move the needle. This is the power of United Way East Ontario.
