United Way

Why give to the United Way?

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.


We can make a difference!

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!
