COVID-19 Response and Impact


For almost a century, the United Way of Washtenaw County has served our community. Through triumphs and challenges, we mobilize the caring power of our region to help people in need. As we all face growing concerns about coronavirus (COVID-19), our mission and purpose remain the same.   

We are monitoring developments of this global pandemic for families in vulnerable communities in Washtenaw County.
In our county, 43 percent of households struggle to meet their basic needs. That’s more than 60,000 households. For many of these families, one small setback can lead to a major financial hardship. A prolonged crisis like this can be catastrophic. 
We’re committed to doing all we can to help those who need it most.
