About the Grants
The strength of a community is directly influenced by the health, happiness and well-being of its residents. Every day in Van Buren County, United Way funded programs are helping people deal with health and human service issues. From disaster recovery assistance to literacy classes, United Way provides many crucial services for the community.
Through generous donors, United Way is able to fund agencies that create an impact in the areas of Youth Development, Basic Needs, Families & Children, Health & Community, and Exceptional People. Local volunteers review all applications for financial and program achievement, ensuring dollars are spent wisely and provide a positive impact on the community.
