This year, United Way Elgin Middlesex is funding 92 programs at 54 partner agencies. Programs target the community’s most pressing needs, from essential basics like food, housing, transportation access and recreation close to home, to long-term solutions for persistent poverty.
United Way recently completed Year 2 of the London for All poverty reduction strategy. As lead agency, United Way is working with more than 60 organizations, 160 volunteers from diverse backgrounds and 38 individuals with lived experience to implement 112 recommendations to end poverty in a generation. As London for All enters year three, 52 recommendations are complete and 60 more are in progress.
“The #UNIGNORABLE issues we’re facing require complex solutions that go beyond a one-year campaign,” says Ziegner, stating that United Way will report on progress at its annual Impact Celebration slated for April 2020. “More than ever, we need our entire community to come together, show their local love, and work with us to create a community where everyone matters.”
