Our community has the highest rate of childhood poverty in the country. In fact, one in three kids live in poverty across Windsor-Essex County, and that rate is one in two in some neighbourhoods. Because of this, United Way has decided to go “all in” on a “Cradle to Career” strategy that looks to help our area’s most vulnerable kids get every chance to succeed - from the time that they’re born until they find a career.
WRH is one of many public and private partners in our community who through the guidance of United Way is supporting ProsperUs – the name given to the community project aimed at helping kids succeed in areas of Windsor-Essex where child poverty is most prevalent.
By supporting the United Way, you’re supporting programs that feed kids in low-income households. You’re giving families access to nutritious meals. And so much more.
Windsor Regional Hospital is proud to support the United Way and encourages staff to consider even a small monthly donation to help our most vulnerable citizens … because everyone deserves a chance to live a long and healthy life!
