July 24, 2019

The United Way has selected 18 new partners for the rest of this year and next. 

The names of these organizations will be officially announced on Tuesday at City Hall. Executive Director of the United Way for Southwestern Alberta, Janelle Marietta-Vasquez spoke about the types of programs that are attractive to the United Way. 

"This year there's been a huge focus on Indigenous programming. So, ensuring that we are staying true to the traditions that are needed, and that the right people are running those programs." 

Vasquez says one in five people will be funded by a United Way program in their lifetime.
