Every meal reminds a homebound neighbor that someone cares.

YMOW stands committed to providing food and support to medically homebound neighbors of every color, race, gender and orientation. 

Don't miss your chance to help make our December event a huge success!

Couple's dedication to YMOW lives on through endowment

We’re combining our two signature fundraisers – Meals on Heels and the Holiday Home Tour – into one fabulous event this year!

Mark your calendars for Saturday, Dec. 4, and plan to join us for a fun, festive evening of 1920s glamour to support Ypsilanti’s homebound neighbors at Meals on Heels: A Gatsby Holiday. We hope to hold an in-person event at the Firehouse Museum, complete with Gatsby attire, music, food and drink, but will host virtually if needed.

You can help to make this event a success by becoming a sponsor or in-kind donor!

Sponsorships are available at all levels. See the form below, or email Sally at for more information.

Jim and Marla Gousseff’s dedication to YMOW and their homebound neighbors lives on through gifts to six Ypsilanti organizations, including Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels.

Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels will received a $200,000 endowment from The James W. (Jim) and Marla J. Gousseff Fund, part of a $1.8 million estate gift to the Ypsilanti Area Community Fund (YACF). The endowment will be used to establish a fund that will support Ypsilanti Meals on Wheels for many years to come.

YMOW Executive Director Alison Foreman said the Gousseffs’ generosity has benefited Ypsilanti and YMOW for decades and will continue to be felt well as need in the Ypsilanti community continues to grow.
