Who we are

Changing lives is at the heart of what we do – from our beginnings in 1924 to now. We partner with hundreds of individuals and organizations that share a collective vision for what is possible. Through our work in education, financial stability and health, we are improving the odds for children and families, today and for generations to come.

            Celebrating older adults

            United Way’s Golden Wishes makes dreams a reality for older adults age 60+ in Miami-Dade County. As Miami-Dade residents are living longer and healthier lives, we are finding new ways to honor, celebrate and maximize contributions for older adults.

For teachers like Kimika and Theresa, the Child Development Associate (CDA) Credential™ was a unique opportunity to open the door to a field they had long admired.
