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.

      Help shape our future

      The 2020 Census is much more than just a head count. It also gives you an opportunity to shape the future for you, your family and our community.

        Funding the future of early education through fashion

        It all started with an ant. One of the smallest creatures inspired a classroom. That classroom inspired a fashion powerhouse. And with your help, we can continue to inspire young minds in our community.

          Helping children save for their educational futures

          The newly launched Future Bound Miami is the first universal Children’s Savings Account (CSA) program in the state of Florida. Poised to help our community’s youth save for their futures, it was established by a consortium of community partners committed to working together to create more resources for Miami-Dade’s families’ educational and economic advancement.

            Helping the underserved with expert, free tax preparation

            When it comes to doing taxes, many individuals just know the basics. Many of them forgo tax benefits such as the Earned Income Tax Credit and the Child Tax Credit because they are not well-informed or have simply not heard of them. The Miami-Dade VITA Coalition, now known as Miami Tax Pros, wants to make sure you know where to turn to for answers to all your questions and help put more money in your pocket.

                Meet Apolonia

                Starting from scratch was daunting but necessary for Apolonia. With two young children in a new country, the stakes were that much higher. That’s where our United Way Center for Financial Stability came in.
