Areas of Focus

United Way Oakville invests in three main areas in order to ensure that we are addressing current and emerging needs in our community. The three areas of focus are as follows:

All That Kids Can Be


Supporting children and youth with the resources and opportunities they need to grow up healthy, to succeed and achieve a healthy transition to adulthood.




Healthy People, Strong Communities

Supporting quality of life for seniors, newcomers, families and neighbourhoods.



From Poverty to Possibility

Supporting individuals and families to meet basic needs (such as food, shelter and employment) and to increase their capacity to move towards self-sufficiency and well-being.
