What We Do


At United Way Oakville, we’re working to create opportunities for a better life for everyone.

Did you know that over 30,000 people benefit from United Way Oakville programs and services?

Our work is based on a simple but profound belief—what unites us is ultimately far more powerful than what divides us. When you support United Way Oakville, your gift supports strategies aimed at improving the social conditions in our community. In the short term, we do this by meeting immediate needs—helping individuals when they need it most, and in the long term by addressing the root causes of social problems through a systemic approach that works to change whole communities. We focus our efforts on the three main areas that are essential to creating opportunities for a good life. These include helping kids be all they can be, building healthy people and strong communities, and people move from poverty to possibility.

We make a difference every single day

United Way Oakville supports the social fabric that ties our community together. Each day, we’re working with frontline agencies, community partners, the private sector, government to ensure people have access to help when they need it most. Your gift helps provides stability to community agencies and strengthens their capacity to serve our community—both today and into the future.
