Ever want to make the world a better place?
At one time or another we all look around and think, I want to have a positive impact on the world around me; but the world is such a big place, I don’t where to start. Well we have something exciting to tell you…
Change Starts Here.
Where is here? Wherever people decide to make a change. Change can start with two people at a meeting, at work, or in the classroom. And once it starts, it grows, as we engage people and mobilize collective action. As change happens, new things are possible.
At United Way of South Eastern Alberta, we are proud of our role as partners, facilitators and funders in bringing positive change to Medicine Hat, Brooks and surrounding communities.
Who is United Way? United Way is the largest non government funder of health and social services in south eastern Alberta. Since 2000, donors to United Way of South Eastern Alberta have invested $5.5 million to support programs and services; changing the lives of 1 in 5 individuals and their families in local communities.
Those using programs United Way supports are not always faceless strangers. They are our neighbors, co-workers, friends and family. Often we don’t realize that the services they rely on are funded with the donations United Way receives and allocates to three focus areas.
“Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it’s the only thing that ever has.”
