Fight Poverty & Improve Health

Imagine what our community would be like without poverty!  And what healthy active living would look like if we could all participate. United Way Halifax is fully committed to changing these conditions with a focus on four strategies that address the most critical barriers facing Halifax residents: Opportunities to change lives; Stronger Neighbourhoods; Improved Social Capital to prevent isolation; and Healthy Active Living so we eat well and have the chance to be physically active.

All of United Way’s outreach activities whether funding, research, partnerships, convening or advocacy, have the single purpose of fighting poverty and improving community health.
