From poverty to possibility

Improving Lives

Poverty is a complex set of stubborn, intertwined social issues. When you give to United Way you are helping families avoid eviction from their homes and helping individuals keep their housing by teaching them how to be good tenants.

Rent Bank loans given to families to prevent homelessness

Changing Lives: Kamloops Rent Bank

Rent Banks assist individuals and families when they find themselves in crisis, by providing small, low interest, loans to keep people in stable rental housing, or to pay utilities that are in arrears.  Rent bank loans are for people who are in stable housing, but who have been challenged by an emergency situation that jeopardizes their housing.  Rent bank loans are for people who do not qualify for other types of funding; people who would otherwise be left to fall through the cracks and enter the cycle of homelessness.
