COVID-19 Recovery Fund

United Way of Washtenaw County - COVID-19 Community Relief Fund is Transitioning to Phase II

Thank you to all of our corporate partners and donors. Because of you we were able to reach our million dollar goal. The quick response from the community made it possible for United Way to be at the forefront for the needs of Washtenaw County.  We are proud to support over 38 local organizations in Washtenaw County to help meet the needs in our community as best as possible. One organization, Destiny and Purpose Community Outreach (DAPCO) assists families with the skills and resources to maintain healthy relationships and lives.  We will continue to make grant investments until we have invested 100% of the funds raised.

"As stricter measures are instituted to curb the spread of COVID-19, including longer school closures and orders of 'shelter in place,' the pressure on parents only increases," said Towana Parker, Executive Director of DAPCO. "With resources from United Way, we can ensure that meeting their baby's essential needs for diapers and wipes isn't an additional stressor on them."
