“The voyage of discovery is not in seeking new landscapes… but in having new eyes.”
We’d like to introduce you to the people who work every day to make a difference in the community; to hear the stories of those whose lives have been changed, and to see the impact of your gift to United Way Oakville.
The Seeing Is Believing Agency Tours provide an eye-opening experience for you and your friends, family or colleagues to see first hand how your donations are changing lives.
Join us Wednesday, August 27 to see the impact of your gift on our community.

11:00 am: The Lighthouse Program for Grieving Children
Address: 82 Wilson Street, Oakville ON
The Lighthouse provides peer support groups for grieving children, teens and their families. As families struggle to cope with the aftermath of death, each in their own way, the Lighthouse supports primarily the child and teen, which often feel powerless, angry and excluded following a close death.
