2016 - 2019 Community Impact Report
Since 1958, the United Way of Sarnia- Lambton has been investing community dollars into organizations, programs and services that improve the lives of those in need in Lambton County; but it’s not enough. Needs in our community continue to increase and change, new issues develop. As society, technology and our own local community continues to evolve, circumstances emerge surrounding these economic conditions, innovations and growth.
While most of these changes serve our community and keep it moving ahead, others have led to issues that plague individuals and families living right next door to all of us. There are still those without jobs or with low paying jobs, children who read or write below grade level, and seniors who need supports in order to avoid hospital stays.
These issues affect all of us right here in our own community, where we live, work and play. They are not isolated instances, involving only disadvantaged families and individuals. They are issues that matter to us collectively. We all have a personal stake in creating viable solutions that connect and motivate us as community partners to not only address the problems and needs but rather, engage ourselves in lasting, sustainable transformation. United Way of Sarnia-Lambton is addressing our community’s issues in order to have long-term results within our community; we are coming together and forming partnerships to develop lasting solutions. This new approach is called Community Impact.
We understand that all of these challenges in our community are complex. We know that real solutions to these issues demand an integrated and strategic approach. This new approach can be summed up in 2 words: Community Impact.
