Thanks to leadership provided by United Way of Mason County and the Pennies from Heaven Foundation, Mason County is now home to the innovative Lakeshore Resource Network where 10 health and human service non-profits are located and able to collaborate. By being under one roof, the organizations operate more efficiently and effectively through the sharing of services including a centralized receptionist, phone, internet system and more. The environment focuses on treating the whole person versus the initial need. Together, we are able to dig deeper into what other issues may have caused the crisis to occur in the first place and provide additional resources. The building opened in the fall of 2017 and is located at 920 East Tinkham Avenue, Ludington.
