United Way of Washtenaw County awarded Saline Area Social Service (SASS) a $5,000 grant to support the basic needs of the individuals and families they serve, according to a statement from the organization.
According to the December 20 press release, within Washtenaw County, a gap persists between those who are financially secure and those who are living ‘on the brink.’ “Although one of the most affluent counties in Michigan—nearly one third of households report an annual income greater than $100,000-- over one third of households (33%) do not have sufficient liquid assets to subsist at the poverty level for three months in the absence of income,” said Bridget Healy, Director of Community Impact.
According to United Way of Washtenaw County, the mission of SASS is to help people who are struggling within the Saline Area School District by providing them the extra aid, tools, and resources to help improve their lives. In doing so, the community is being connected to other resources and organizations to create a thriving community for everyone.
“Until everyone in our community is able to thrive and meet their needs, we will continue to provide grant funding for food, clothing, and shelter—the most basic needs,” stated Healy, according to UWWC.
Funding for United Way’s Basic Needs Fund is generated annually through an income tax check-off campaign led by the Michigan Association of United Ways. 

Since 1921, United Way of Washtenaw County brings people, organizations and resources together to create a thriving community for everyone. We focus on Health, Education and Financial Stability, the building blocks to a good quality of life, to strengthen the community and create opportunities for individuals and families. Our Volunteer Center provides an easy online way for people to connect with nonprofits and our 2-1-1 helpline refers more than 8,000 people annually to critically needed services.
