- About Us
Civic participation is the single most sustainable way to address the region’s most pressing issues. Healthy and engaged citizens are able to support strong neighbourhoods and vibrant communities. Launched in 2010, Strength Investments goes beyond the formal programs United Way York Region traditionally funds and supports everyday people and groups already at work in their communities.
This catalytic funding invests in residents, businesses, faith groups coming together to create innovative and shared solutions to complex social issues. The funding seeds and strengthens the infrastructure for bringing people together for critical thinking, strategic action planning and solutions seeking. Strength Investments incubates and scales community-led social innovations for sustainable impact.
