United Way works to create positive, measurable and sustainable change in our community.

In Southeastern Michigan, nearly half of all families struggle to meet their basic needs. At United Way, we mobilize a network of hundreds of partners and thousands of donors, advocates and volunteers to build communities of stable households and thriving children.

Our Vision

Stable Households
Thriving Children

Families can meet their basic needs and access financial skills, resources and support

If families can’t meet their basic needs now, they can’t prepare for the future. Through our 2-1-1 helpline and strategic investment in our partner organizations, we help people get out of crisis—and stay out.

Children start kindergarten ready to learn and can succeed in school and life

If we don’t invest in our children, they’ll never be able to break the cycle and build a better life. We make sure children start school ready to succeed and graduate prepared to build a better life.
