Private non-profit Community Action Agency serving low-income residents in the rural counties of Mason, Manistee, Lake and Newaygo counties. Programs and services include emergency assistance with food and utilities, early childhood development Head Start/Early Head Start programs, home weatherization, Toys for TotsGifts for Teens, and other programs and services. The Walk for Warmth fundraising event raises funds for people in an emergency situation when they are just over the threshold of being eligible for state/federal funds or when funds are exhausted. Donations are also received to purchase toys for our holiday Toys for TotsGifts for Teens program so that children of low-income families of Mason and Manistee counties have a gift under their Christmas tree. Donations may be specified for either of these programs, or discretionary. All funds will directly aid low-income people in our service area.
