WISD Receives Grants to Further Equity in Washtenaw

Tuesday, November 13, 2018 - 10:45am
United Way of Washtenaw County (UWWC) announces its grant investments to local programs and initiatives that address racial and socioeconomic inequities in Washtenaw County. These grantees are serving communities of color and individuals and families with lower incomes.  United Way volunteers invested nearly $100,000 in 12 programs, seven of which focus on people in Ypsilanti.
WISD programs receiving support:
  • The Trusted Advisor Program, part of Success by 6 Great Start Collaborative's Great Start Parent Coalition, which trains and supports parents from low-resourced neighborhoods to connect with parents of young children through their shared experiences, and includes canvassing in low-income neighborhoods and family friendly community events in order to connect families to early education programs and community services. One of the program goals is to help young children be ready for success in school.
  • The Washtenaw Futures College Access Network, which is a community network focused on making college an achievable reality for all students in Washtenaw County, with emphasis on supporting low-income youth, youth of color, and youth who will be the first in their families to pursue college.
“Our donors and volunteers create solutions for our community. When we live united, ideas become possible,” shared Pam Smith, President and CEO of UWWC.
