  • One of OCUW main focuses is improving the lives of ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed). ALICE workers educate our children, keep us healthy, and make our quality of life possible, yet do not earn enough to support their own families.  

    ALICE households are forced to make tough choices, such as deciding between quality child care or paying the rent, which have long-term consequences not only for ALICE, but for all.


    The Otsego County United Way in partnership with the Otsego County Economic Alliance and the Gaylord Area Chamber of Commerce is collecting data on the childcare needs in our county.  

    There are 2 surveys below, please choose the one that it is most applicable to you.




    "The Otsego County United Way loves the Gaylord Area Chamber of Commerce because it help us foster our mission "Uniting Resources to build community" by helping us spread the word and partnering in special projects to build a stronger community". - Erin Mann, Executive Director of the Otsego County United Way.
