Ongoing programs: United Way of Chatham-Kent currently invests charitable donations within three Focus Areas- 1) Healthy People, Strong Communities-providing people the confidence and support needed to build a vibrant community 2) All That Kids Can Be-encouraging children and youth to reach their fullpotential 3) From Proverty to Possibillity-helping families and individuals receive the basic necessities of daily livingIn 2018,our organization will support a minimum of 32 programs and direct services provided by local health and social service organizations-a complete listing of which can be found in this Charity Information Return. With three office locations in Chatham-Kent-Chatham, Tibury and Wallaceburg-we will serve no less than 40,000 (or one in three) Chatham-Kent residents this year. In 2017, we served45,823 residents in Chatham-Kent. In addition to theforegoing, United Way of Chatham-Kent honours donor designations to other Registered Canadian Charities and provides periodic grants through its various funding streams-Women's Leadership Council, Bushels of Hope Future Fund and Community Impact Grants.

New programs: In 2018, we plan on launching a revitalized volunteer connection database/website that will allow willing volunteers in CK to find a position of interest to them as well as allowing those organizations seeking volunteers to post tyheir current openings. We are currently exploring a community-wide initiative to end homelessness,entitled Tiny Homes. We currently have a wait list of over 700 people in need of subsidized housing - which is an average 5 year wait. This initiativeis looking at expanding affordable housing options in Chatham-Kent.We are also exploring a program called "Rebuilding Wheels. Rebuilding Lives". This is a model similar to Habitat for Humanity, however, instead of a house, a deserving family will receive a car. The cars are donated from local dealerships, parts are donated, the local high school shop gets the car in tip-top condition, the dealership safeties, and then the car is provided to the selected family.
