United Way of Central NB delivers $460,000 to nine community service organizations through the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund
United Way of Central NB is pleased to announce $460,000 in funding to support nine agencies and non-profits in the Central NB region through the Government of Canada’s Community Services Recovery Fund. The Community Services Recovery Fund is a one-time investment of $400 million to help community service organizations (charities, non-profits, Indigenous governing bodies) adapt, modernize, and be better equipped to improve the efficacy, accessibility and sustainability of the community services that they provide through the pandemic recovery and beyond.
The following agencies and non-profits are being supported in community: Adult Literacy Fredericton, AIDS New Brunswick, Capital Region Mental Health and Addictions, Oromocto and Surrounding Area Food Bank, Keep Our Home Safe (Woodstock Sanctuary House), Partners for Youth, The Ville Cooperative, Turning Leaf Foundation and Youth in Transition.
Community service organizations are at the forefront of addressing communities’ needs. Since the early phases of the COVID-19 pandemic, they have struggled with increased demand for their services, reduced revenues, declines in charitable giving due to the rising cost of living, and a greater need to make use of digital tools. Many organizations are struggling to recover and adapt their services to the changing needs of Central NB.
United Way Central NB is proud to be taking part in the Community Services Recovery Fund, a collaboration between United Way Centraide Canada, Canadian Red Cross, and Community Foundations of Canada to provide funding to Community Service Organizations, including non-profit organizations, Indigenous Governing Bodies, and Registered Charities located across Canada. The Community Services Recovery Fund responds to what charities and non-profits need right now and supports organizations as they adapt to the long-term impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic.
