We live in a vibrant community, and it’s people across our region who make this a great place to live. Yet in every city, there’s a line that separates “have” and “have-not.” As citizens, we are all responsible for altering the line that divides.
United Way is working to reshape that line so it can encircle and connect us. We focus on unity, not disparity. We see opportunity rather than need. And we link people and support, so vital connections can be made.
United Way Halifax is dedicated to improving lives and changing social conditions. For more than 85 years, it has been a reliable, efficient, trusted community-change agent. With your support, we’ve helped many — seniors, newcomers, young people, parents, your neighbours, co-workers, students, clients, customers. All these individuals have the courage to change their own lives for the better. You may not know the names of everyone benefiting from support, but we can all share in the responsibility of making life better for others.
Halifax is a better place thanks to Ruth Goldbloom. She worked tirelessly to make positive change and impacted people on many levels across the community. She was also the first woman to chair our annual campaign, and was a friend to many she met along the way. United Way is grateful for her support and offers sincere sympathy to her family. Please read more to hear about the many ways Ruth impacted Nova Scotians.
