We know that in Regina, many people could not, and cannot, afford to adequately prepare for how social distancing and the spread of COVID-19 is affecting their family. Many do not have supports, should they need to self-isolate. Those who already face barriers - like poverty, homelessness and social isolation - need even more help during this time. The needs will continue to evolve. But, as you protect your family and those closest to you to keep them healthy, we urge you to think of those who may need the help of their neighbours.
We've been there for each other through many challenges. Each day, United Way Regina works with partners in our community to tackle the tough problems. In a crisis, we work rapidly with front-line agencies, government and partners to uncover the greatest needs, and organize to achieve the greatest impact. Together we can make sure Regina's most vulnerable are safe. We can make sure they have their basic needs met, and feel a sense of community and continuity in this difficult time.
