THAW Mission

THAW is stabilizing and empowering Michigan families, keeping them healthy, safe and warm.

Across Michigan, 40% of households (1.54m) struggle to afford the basic needs of housing, including energy.

Over 28,000 children and 4,800 seniors lived in households that received energy assistance last year.


93% of every dollar goes to those in need.
