Our Mandate

United Way of Sarnia-Lambton Mission Statement

To generate resources enabling the community to respond to Human Care priorities in Sarnia-Lambton and to measure and improve the effectiveness of these invested resources.

To accomplish this mission statement, the United Way of Sarnia-Lambton has focused its resources in two core businesses: Resource Development and Community Investment.

Resource Development includes Campaign, Planned Giving, (the vision 2025 program), Volunteerism, and other resources.

Community Investment includes the investment of all resources: Campaign revenues, volunteers' time, and other assets including knowledge and support.
