$16,000 United Way Grant Award

United WayThe United Way of Northwest Michigan awarded a $16,000 grant to support the Dann’s House program. The purpose of the funds is to subsidize some rent and hire a Program Director to oversee the project, with the long-term goal of expanding the project to accommodate more residents.

Our program was selected based on the specific recommendations of the community volunteer Citizen Action Team  who reviewed the competing applications and participated in each of the interviews. The Team recommendations were reviewed for allocation and unanimously ratified at United Way’s Board of Directors.
