Community Programs

One of the guiding principles of our organization is: Connected.

The following programs provided due in part to support from United Way of Midland County. 

The following programs provided due in part to support from United Way of Midland County

We are better, together. We believe that when we take advantage of the strengths of those around us, everyone benefits. If we are unable to help someone, we believe that it is our responsibility to connect them to a resource that can. 

To that end, we continually find ways to create strong partnerships with our community.
