Crisis is not unfamiliar to our region
We’ve been there for each other through floods, ice storms—even tornadoes. We’ve also reached far beyond our borders to welcome those in need, and help them build a better life. At United Way East Ontario, we know that when we stand up for one another, we can make a difference.
Rising up in times of need
Recovery after an unexpected community crisis can continue long after the immediate needs are met. Often invisible struggles linger, and new and unexpected challenges can emerge. That’s why United Way East Ontario works rapidly with front-line agencies, municipalities and partners across Prescott-Russell, Ottawa, Lanark County and Renfrew County to help those most in need.
Thanks to our partners and supporters, we ensure communities affected by crisis have the long-term mental health supports they need to heal, that those most vulnerable of isolation are engaged, and that basic needs are met.
Taking on urgent challenges. Making a big impact.
Supporting our community After the Storm
In the year after the Ottawa region was hit by six tornadoes, our community came together to rebuild and recover.
United Ways partner with munipalities and front-line organizations to plan for long-term flood recovery
United Ways are committed to working together after events like this spring’s flooding, and we encourage others to join this collaboration.
United Way has the power to conquer complex challenges
Building connections between people, organizations, government and businesses is in our DNA. Deep roots in our communities means we know who the right people are to bring to the table, and we work together to make informed decisions that have a long-term impact. When crisis strikes our communities, this becomes our superpower.
