United Way Partners

United Way Centrade

March of Dimes has partnerships with 12 United Ways across Ontario. While each of these communities has different priorities for United Way investments, they all share the same vision of ensuring that in every community, persons in need have access to programs and services that will enable them to improve their quality of life and increase their independence and capacity to contribute to the community.

Eleven of the United Ways provide support to our Assistive Devices Program, and in eight of these, the funding provided by the United Way is exclusively for this program. In two communities, United Way investments are used to support not only the Assistive Devices program, but also our Recreation and Integration program as well as Community Services which includes Peer Support and DesignAbility® services. March of Dimes’ Northern Medical Clinics receives support as well from United Way Cochrane-Timiskaming. In Toronto, the United Way funds a number of March of Dimes donor programs including the Learning Independence for Future Empowerment (LIFE) program. The LIFE program is also funded by United Way Peel Region.

As a member agency of the United Way, March of Dimes is grateful for the opportunities afforded us in these community relationships, as we are able to extend our services to persons in need thanks to the financial support of these United Ways. In particular, the Assistive Devices program is able to serve vulnerable persons in financial need. The Assistive Devices Program helps to ensure that a person with a physical disability receives the assistive device or mobility aid that will provide them with the opportunity for improved access and increased capacity for independence. Community Services provide peer support and educational opportunities that help to build a better quality of life. The Learning Independence for Future Empowerment program provides young adults with a learning environment to expand their social and professional skills while practicing the daily responsibilities of adulthood.
