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.

    We’re 95 years strong

    United Way of Miami-Dade celebrates 95 years of building a stronger Miami, so that every person can have a fighting chance.

      The 2018 United Way ALICE Report is here

      The just-released ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report provides a holistic snapshot of financial insecurity in the state and in Miami-Dade County.

      Turning curiosity into success


      Career Connections, a joint initiative between the Beacon Council’s One Community One Goal, Miami-Dade County Public Schools and our United Way, host a series of engaging career exploration panels and Q&As with executives and entrepreneurs in Miami-Dade to inspire high school students.

        Caring for the community’s children
