All Donations Stay in Shiawassee County to Serve the People of Shiawassee County.

Our work

We address the root causes of poverty in Shiawassee County by funding programs at local agencies, administering the Hunger Network, offering the community the 2-1-1 help line, and working to help efficiently provide services to the people in our communities. It is envisioned that this combination of funding , collaborative efforts and intiatives will result in lasting, measurable change for people in Shiawassee County.

Shiawassee United Way works with government, non-profit, for profit organizations, and public schools to form collaborations and partnerships to avoid unnecessary duplications of service. This ensures that your dollars are used efficiently and effectively to address the root causes of poverty and advance the common good in our community.

Michigan Association of United Ways ALICE Project

Did you know that 41% of all Shiawassee County households cannot afford even the basic needs? ALICE, an acronym for Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed, are households that earn more than the U. S. poverty level, but less than the basic cost of living for the county.
