The 2019 St. Joe's United Way Campaign has begun!

Message from the President

Since joining St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton, I’m consistently impressed at the countless ways we serve our community in our day-to-day work. As time goes on, I’ve been increasingly inspired in seeing the impact our care and compassion has beyond our hospital walls. I’m proud to be a part of an organization that has such a long and storied history of serving the most vulnerable citizens in our community. One of the ways we can continue to show our support is through our annual United Way campaign at St. Joe’s.

The United Way Halton and Hamilton exists to create measurable improvement on priority social issues in our community by focusing on three specific areas: moving people from poverty to possibility, creating healthy communities and helping kids be all they can be. When you give to the United Way, your gift helps provide core funding and program support to dozens of local agencies offering vital services to hundreds of thousands of people in our communities, many of which directly touch the lives of our patients and their families. In fact, United Way Halton and Hamilton supports a vast network of community-based supports services that provide support to individuals and families, as well as patients both pre- and post-hospitalization and throughout outpatient care. They It invests in preventative programs as well as after-care support programs, ensuring that patients have a safe transition back into the community and access to ongoing supports.

This year the 2019 United Way campaign at St. Joe’s is aiming to fundraise $25,000. To make your gift to the United Way follow the instructions on this page.

Thank you for giving to the 2019 United Way campaign.

Melissa Farrell, President
St. Joseph's Healthcare Hamilton
