Working together to support our most vulnerable

Everyone is feeling the effects of COVID-19, but for those who already face significant barriers such as poverty, homelessness and food security, these times are even more challenging and difficult.

York Region is working collaboratively with the United Way Greater Toronto, community organizations and stakeholders to ensure the most vulnerable in our communities continue to have access to the critical supports they need.

This community coordination initiative enables us to address emerging issues in a timely, effective way. By working closely with our partners, we can leverage and share resources and assets. This partnership allows our existing collaborative tables such as the Community Investment Fund Network, the Human Services Planning Board and the Community Partnership Council to better identify and respond to the gaps, needs, trends and any local emerging opportunities.

By coordinating our efforts in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic, and taking the time to explore all of the issues and possible collective actions, we can ensure our community’s most vulnerable population is being served in an efficient and organized manner, even during uncertain times.

Now more than ever, we need our social infrastructure and by working together we can keep our communities strong, caring and safe.

Agencies interested in learning more, seeking assistance or wanting to participate can contact COVID19@york.ca for more information.
