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.

    Just like that, we have wrapped up another year celebrating key accomplishments, including 95 years of service and impact in our community.

      Stay safe before, during and after a storm

      Hurricane season is underway through November 30. Preparing and sharing information with family and friends can make a big difference in staying safe in the wake of a hurricane.

      Looking back while looking ahead


      Over the last year, together with our partner agencies and members of our community like you, we directly impacted the lives of more than 100,000 of our friends and neighbors. We also galvanized nearly 5,000 volunteers who gave 20,000 hours of their time to create meaningful change. Learn more about what we’ve collectively done to benefit our community this past year.

          Meet Alexis

          Alexis served active duty in the United States Army Reserve for four years before he was transferred to a reserve unit in South Florida. Facing possible eviction from his home, he was referred to United Way Mission United. They helped him with the free services he needed to feel empowered and change his financial status to turn his life around.
