Serving the Plymouth, Canton and Western Wayne County area since 1944, PCUW focuses on basic needs, education and health/stability by supporting summer classes for students not achieving at grade level; food, rent and utility assistance; senior transportation; shelter and counseling for domestic violence victims and their children; programs for developmentally disabled adults; substance abuse treatment for youth; hospice; grief counseling for all ages, and other human services.
