United Way BC Thompson Nicola Cariboo Region
Serving the Thompson Nicola Cariboo from the Rockies to Copper Desert, we invest in programs and initiatives that improve lives.
Creating Local Impact
In 2021, United Way BC Thompson Nicola Cariboo Region invested over $1.3 million dollars to support over 76,500 unique individuals in the Thompson Nicola Cariboo through our Community Fund, New Horizons Seniors Funding, Emergency Community Support Fund, and our United Way Sector Stabilization Fund.

Providing flood & fire relief
We rallied for our neighbours during a time of crisis, investing over $550K in Urgent Response funding to local communities affected by devastating fires and floods. We are committed to supporting the community-led rebuilding and recovery of these communities in the years to come.
Growing our impact
We scaled out United Way British Columbia programs by expanding the iVolunteer program into our area, launching a new Regional Food Hub in Williams Lake, and adding Hi Neighbour initiatives in Lytton and Merritt.
Listening to our community
We focused on our non-profit sector strengthening work by conducting workshops and undertaking research to better understand local community needs that will guide our ongoing work.
Investing in our community’s health
We continued to facilitate the Community Action Team in Kamloops (CAT) which includes representatives from government, first nations, health authorities, non-profit organizations, and concerned citizens. This informed group discusses the current overdose epidemic and creates actionable plans and awareness at the local level.
Expanding access to essential services
We distributed more than 8,700 bus tickets through our Emergency Transportation program in partnership with the City of Kamloops. This allows for barrier-free access to community service programs and resources.
