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’ve raised more than $1.5 million in response to Hurricane Dorian

    In the aftermath of Hurricane Dorian, we continue to help those affected. We have raised over $1.5 million in funds to support Bahamas relief through Operation Helping Hands, our partnership with the Miami Herald/el Nuevo Herald and Univision 23. To date*, we have awarded grants to four organizations, totaling $539,000.

      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.

            Women United heads for the state Capitol

            In November, more than 75 United Way Women United members from across Florida gathered for the Women United State Summit and Capitol Days. Two of our very own, Rosary Plana Falero and Johanna Oliver Rousseaux, represented United Way of Miami-Dade in Tallahassee.

              Meet Dearrie

              Dearrie joined the military in 2001. And after serving for 12 years, every day as a civilian was difficult for her – and still is. She struggled juggling her five children, pursuing a nursing degree and making ends meet – until she learned about our United Way.

                Businesses at their best

                These corporations and organizations, along with their employees, offer generous support to United Way of Miami-Dade. By championing us, they make our work in education, financial stability and health possible.
