The Otsego County United Way established First Call for Help in 1991. Since that time, the program’s ultimate goal has been to insure that disadvantaged community members can become contributing community members.

 

Today, the program employs a full-time coordinator funded as a program service from the Otsego County United Way. This integral community position is responsible for aiding Otsego County residents – often families – who face eviction, homelessness, utility shutoff, and other economic hardships.

 

To give an idea of how the program has grown, in 1995, total assistance through First Call for Help totaled $22,872. In 2014, the total assistance provided was valued at approximately $352,600. Over the course of the past ten years, the program provided about $1,430,000 in assistance.

 

First Call for Help provides not only direct aid, but also education and sustainable solutions through collaboration with a number of community partners such as the Otsego County Ministerial Association, Salvation Army, Otsego Human Services Network, Northern Homes CDC, Northeast Michigan Community Service Agency (NEMCSA), the local Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS).
