Since 2002, United Way’s worldwide network women’s leadership groups have raised more than $1 billion to drive lasting change in local communities. Locally, Women United is a dynamic, philanthropic group dedicated to promoting our Bib to Backpack work. Beyond making an annual financial contribution, members contribute their time, professional expertise and talent to ensure that parents and caregivers in our region have the tools they need to help the children in their lives be successful.
An impact tour is a unique opportunity to get an inside look at one of our nonprofit partner agencies and learn more about how United Way for Southeastern Michigan changes lives. This experience will focus on our early childhood development work. You will get a brief tour of several neighboring locations to get a full picture of what ACCESS offers to parents/care providers and children in the community. You will hear from experts in the field, and end with a chance to interact with parents and children in their classrooms to see firsthand how you are helping to make an impact in the community.
