Monroe County United Ministries (MCUM) provides affordable childcare to low-income working families in a licensed and accredited center that can serve up to 97 children and basic needs assistance to those in financial crisis. This assistance may come in the form of food, clothing, household items, cleaning supplies, referrals, etc. MCUM has been providing social services in Monroe County since 1939 and is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) organization (EIN # 35-1313090). MCUM receives support in many forms from more than 40 local faith communities, in addition to support from a wide variety of other sources, but our programs do not include a religious component.
The Board of Directors of Monroe County United Ministries recently completed a Strategic Plan for 2013-2017. After considering organizational strengths, community need, and social trends, a plan was developed to guide MCUM's innovation, leadership, and endurance in the coming years. An executive summary of the plan is available here. Contact Meri Reinhold, Executive Director, with questions about MCUM's plan for the future or how you would like to support that plan.
