Areas of Action

In the past couple of years, people have experienced job loss and food insecurity. Many individuals have lost their homes or are at risk of losing their shelter. The demand for mental health services has skyrocketed. There has been a tragic increase in the number of people who are dying from accidental overdoses. More families are on the edge of poverty. Stress is high.

There are, however, many things in our community that have not changed. Our care and compassion for one another. Our love for everything local. Our sense of community – neighbours helping neighbours.

Because we love #YYJ, from Victoria to Sooke to Sidney and the Southern Gulf Islands, we will rally. We continue to rally our energy, time and talents, and where we can, our dollars to serve our community.

2022 Four areas of action

For this year’s annual campaign season, we have four areas of action, each with signature initiatives wherein individuals can direct gifts to help our neighbours who need it the most.

Uniting local people for local good.

If you are able to make a gift to UWSVI this year we are grateful for your generosity.
Thank you for showing your local love.
