Basic Needs

Heart of West Michigan United Way provides safety net for our community

Recognizing that life’s challenges never end, Heart of West Michigan United Way has recently allocated $3.1 million from its Community Investment Fund to 39 local agencies and 65 programs that help provide services for basic needs in the area of education, income, and health. These local programs provide emergency food assistance, after-school care, home-delivered meals to seniors, parenting-skills classes, housing assistance, violence prevention and so much more.
