The staff of CASE Credit Union have successfully raised $3,436.66 in funds for its first quarter charity partner, The Michigan Coalition Against Homelessness. A check was presented during the credit union’s virtual May Staff Meeting. Each quarter, CASE Credit Union employees individually contribute to a fund that supports an entity whose mission is to support those in need within the community.
MCAH is a nonprofit membership organization formed in 1990 as an association of emergency shelters, transitional housing programs, nonprofit housing and service programs, government programs, and concerned citizens from across the state. MCAH empowers over 600 Michigan homeless service agencies through public awareness activities, advocacy at the state and federal level, and support services that bring in national expertise and best practices.
“We believe in and support the mission of MCAH. As a regional credit union, we recognize the struggles many people firsthand who are struggling as a result of financial uncertainties,” said Jeffrey Benson, president & CEO of CASE Credit Union. “We are proud to contribute to a leader of change that provides resources and assistance for those who face a multitude of challenges, in hopes that together we can create opportunities and guaranteed wellbeing for all.”
The funds generated will directly support the Lansing-area coalition’s mission to end homelessness throughout the state of Michigan. The organization serves as a voice for the homeless by utilizing education, advocacy, and empowerment to alter flawed infrastructure and promote systemic changes needed to empower communities.
“Homelessness is an issue in every county in our state,” said MCAH executive director Eric C. Hufnagel, MPA. “The COVID-19 pandemic has greatly impacted all providers in the homeless service system and so MCAH is all hands on deck with respect to providing our local partners the most appropriate information, guidance and technical support possible — while also communicating and advocating for their needs at the state and federal level. The donation we’re so generously receiving from CASE Credit Union team members will help ensure that we can continue those efforts.”
