There are many circumstances that lead to a life of poverty. Sometimes poor choices are made, other times these choices are thrust upon people. Whatever the reason, if a person in need is willing to build a new life they deserve our support and guidance.
Each year not-for-profit agencies, that provide community social programming, can apply for Community Investment Funding from the United Way. The United Way of Northern British Columbia gives those in need a hand up, not just a hand out. We fund programs throughout the region that work tirelessly on issues around poverty and provide hope for a better quality of life.
