United Way of the Lower Mainland targets grants to support children age 0-6, children 6-12, seniors, and our foundational strategy of Building Stronger Communities. These investments are summarized in our Community Impact Plan. With a focus on prevention, we address issues facing those most vulnerable in our communities. We support solutions that contribute to the development of healthy, caring and inclusive communities. We do not support medically based programs or initiatives that include any form of biological or medical health intervention.
