Join us for a series of community conversations around topics that impact your life.

Since the COVID-19 outbreak began in Southeastern Michigan, United Way has worked to connect the families in our region to reliable information and helpful resources.

Now, we’re partnering with leading experts from our government, education and nonprofit partners to present a series of virtual town halls. These 30-minute virtual meetings will focus on a variety of topics, including water and utility assistance, unemployment, mental health, food access, education resources and more.
