Homelessness, food insecurity, mental illness and precarious employment are really difficult things to have to experience. Now, as public health measures are being made across the region in response to COVID-19, people who are already vulnerable are facing major disruptions and new risks – and many are in crisis right now.
Our community service agencies are on the front-line providing essential services to our region’s most vulnerable. Now more than ever, these agencies are being called upon to be adaptive and responsive to the evolving needs of our communities. We need to pull together to ensure these important services have the resources needed to do this critical work. The Atlantic Compassion Fund will help us do exactly that.
This Atlantic-wide fund – managed by United Way Halifax in collaboration with other United Ways across the region – will help meet basic needs, reduce the impact of further marginalization and bring people back together when the time is right.
Please select United Way of Central NB if you wish to give back to those locally. These funds will be available to registered charities serving community members in Central New Brunswick (this includes Carleton, Madawaska, Northumberland, Queens, Restigouche, Sunbury, Victoria, and York counties.
