Home is so much more than a roof over your head.

Getting your first place, or moving into a new one, can be expensive. That’s why we’re proud to launch “Welcome Home Baskets”. They’re the essential items needed to begin a new life in a new home. We have families and individuals moving into permanent, supportive housing across the region; some of them will have a safe place to lay their head for the first time! With your help, these families can focus on what’s most important: meals on the table, shoes on their feet, and transportation to get to work.

We are mobilizing some caring people in our community to help. Won’t you join us?

Here’s how you can help:

-Make a donation of $100 and our loving team of volunteers will assemble a basket for you

-Start a fundraiser page to donate as a team with your family, friends, workplace, etc.

-Donate items from the inventory list

-Create a basket with friends and family and drop it off at United Way of Northwest Michigan

Don’t forget to include a signed welcome home card for the lucky family; we know they’ll want to thank you.  In the meantime – accept our thanks for your thoughtful and caring gift to a loving family in need.
