All people experience authentic inclusion and have equitable access to resources and opportunities
United Way for Southeastern Michigan is committed to deconstructing systemic racism and institutional bias while promoting diversity, equity and inclusion as a core value in every aspect of our work.

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.Learn More
