Stress. Burnout. Anxiety. Isolation. Many people are struggling with their mental health. And as the pandemic continues to affect our region, the most vulnerable people still need critical supports.

By improving equity, connections, and wellbeing, our communities can be great for everyone. Together, we can make a difference for thousands of residents who depend on United Way East Ontario.


With your help, we can build a brighter future for those feeling isolated in our communities.

Your donation will:

  • Help isolated seniors stay connected with remote and in-person programs, and caregiver supports.

  • Strengthen mental health resources created by and for the communities they serve (such as: Indigenous Peoples, African, Caribbean, Black, as well as other racialized populations, 2SLGBTQ+, and rural residents).

  • Increase counselling for people experiencing crisis, substance use disorders, and gender-based violence.

We’re learning to carry on, but the needs haven’t gone away.  

Your gift will ensure more people get the support they need, when they need it. Give generously today.
Our minimum online donation amount is $5.00.
