OVERVIEW

Mission Statement: "To improve lives and build community by engaging individuals and mobilizing collective action."

Since its inception, United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador has grown from an idea to a reality. Established as United Way of Avalon in 2004, it quickly evolved into a provincial organization by 2009. With a steady increase of funds – raising nearly $1.2million during its 2014 Workplace Campaign - United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador is not only the youngest branch of United Way Centraide Canada, but also the fastest growing.

Keeping in line with United Way’s national focus areas, United Way of Newfoundland and Labrador partners with agencies and organizations province-wide to provide services that strengthen individuals, families, and communities within each of these 3 categories:

From Poverty to Possibility
Moving people out of poverty by meeting basic human needs through the provision of food, shelter, jobs, etc.

Healthy People, Strong Communities
Improving access and availability of social and health-related support services needed to revitalize and strengthen neighbourhoods and overall community engagement.

All that Kids Can Be
Providing youth with access to early literacy and development programs, recreational activities, mentors and other opportunities to discover and develop their talents and interests as they progress through school and into adulthood.
