Agencies supporting individuals facing homelessness or at risk of homelessness in Duncan, Cowichan Region and Nanaimo are invited to apply.
Since April 2020, United Way British Columbia – working with communities in BC’s Interior, Lower Mainland and Central & Northern Vancouver Island (UWBC) has funded 182 organizations delivering 251 programs helping over 125,500 of our neighbours and friends in need from the Malahat to Port Hardy.
Because of our on the ground knowledge of our Vancouver Island communities, the Federal government knew they had a trusted ally in United Way and was quick to help Canadians cope with the pandemic through the Emergency Community Support Fund, increased New Horizons: Seniors Response Fund, and significant Reaching Home: COVID Emergency funding.
Thanks to these partnerships and our ongoing, generous donors, UWBC has invested $4.5 million into our region since last March.
