100 Years of Community Change
In Saginaw County, nearly 50% of residents struggle to meet their most basic needs.
We fight for Saginaw County residents by funding programs that combat the root causes of financial instability.
- High Barriers to Reliable Employment
- Poor Employment Attendance
- Limited Affordable Child Care
- Mismatch Between Skilled Jobs and Requirements
- Prison Records
We fight to help build better futures for Saginaw County residents. We fight for those who do not have a voice.
Change Doesn't Happen Alone
Community Impact Strategy History
As of January 2020, the United Way of Saginaw County will pursue the goal of lifting nearly 5,000 Saginaw County residents out of the ALICE and poverty classifications.
Additionally, to further their Community Impact Strategy, UWSC's funding progressed from a closed allocations process to an open, more inclusive Community Impact Strategy. This new model allowed any 501(c)(3) health and human service provider that services Saginaw County residents to submit a program proposal.
