When people hear “Meals on Wheels,” they think about food. But that’s just the start. From pet care to occupational therapy, YMOW offers support to help our oldest neighbors continue living in the homes they have built and cared for, where they have raised children, and where they prefer to live as they age. 

    Gather your team and sign up today to help YMOW reach its goal to raise $5,000 by Labor Day. Each team that raises $1,000 earns the opportunity to host a branded drink stand in Lemonade Lane during Ypsilanti's Bicentennial 4th of July Celebration.

    Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels has experienced back-to-back record-breaking years as we work to meet the needs of the rapidly growing senior population in Ypsilanti. Every $7 we raise feeds a homebound senior for a day! With your help, we can continue to meet the needs of our community. 

    Learn more about the growing need with our Case for Support.

    OUR MISSION

    Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels provides nutritious meals, social contact and other services to the homebound elderly, ill and disabled in eastern Washtenaw County, to enable them to enjoy healthier, safer, and more independent lives.

    OUR VISION

    A community where every senior feels nourished, valued and supported.

    OUR VALUES

    Compassion

    We exercise compassion by taking time to listen and chat with a client.

    • We meet people where they are, without judgment or blame, empowering them to age as they choose and with the dignity and respect they deserve.
    • We see our clients not only as they are today, but as the sum total of all that they have been and will be. 

    Community

    We encourage community by working with other local agencies to provide for our homebound neighbors, and by including our clients’ voices in decisions regarding their care.

    • We embrace collaboration, with our colleagues, clients, volunteers and organizations, toward achievement of our mission and vision.
    • We partner with our volunteers, donors and clients as we strive to protect the role of our homebound neighbors in our community.

    Reliability

    We demonstrate reliability when meals are delivered on time, at a safe temperature, and with a friendly smile. 

    • We unfailingly deliver on our commitments to others, being accountable and taking ownership of our actions and results.
    • We are responsible stewards of the gifts entrusted to us, honoring those who make it possible for us to improve the lives of others through our work. 

    Adaptability

    We show our adaptability by offering food and support services that meet the individual needs of our clients.

    • We enthusiastically respond to the changing needs of our clients and community.
    • We are nimble and proactive, anticipating needs and exceeding expectations.
    • We offer vegetarian meals, culturally sensitive options and medically friendly meals, as well as help with household chores, pet support and more to help clients remain safe at home.
