"When you reach out a hand to one, you improve the condition of all."

Get Inspired

Because we all have a stake in the health and vitality of our community, your United Way is starting a movement to change the story one life at a time. We will share stories of those who inspire us, and by doing so inspire others to take action in the Battle Creek and Kalamazoo area.

Join The Movement

This movement will help bring the quality education children so need and deserve. It will reunite individuals with more than just jobs that support their families, but also career opportunities. And provide access to a healthier way of life and safer living conditions. This is what your United Way is focused on: Education, Income and Health – the building blocks for a positive quality of life.

Change The Story

We’ve seen many stories changed for the better (check out Shonna'sTony's, Sam's, Alvin's, Beverly's, Leona's, Corrie's, Jeff's, Jackie and Jerry's, Charmica's and Fanny’s stories), but there are many more stories we can change.

Help ignite our movement, and join us in our mission to: change the story.

If you’d like to learn more, please contact Kellie Cochrane at United Way.
