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.

Continuing to serve those who have served


Since 2016, our United Way has operated United Way Mission United — a single point of entry for veterans to access the help they need, at no cost. We’re making the transition from active duty to civilian life as seamless as possible, with events, workshops and outreach activities to keep empowering veterans, year-round.

    Nominate an outstanding volunteer!

    Volunteers are the backbone of our mission and are critical to our work. Let’s celebrate them. We are seeking nominations for United Way of Miami-Dade’s Annual Volunteer Awards!

    Celebrating nearly half a century of helping families care for their aging relatives


    United HomeCare, an impact partner of United Way, is a local nonprofit home health and community care organization that has served the community since 1974. It was originally born as a United Way pilot program, and is now ranked as the largest home health agency in South Florida. United HomeCare’s main goal is to provide care for older adults and disabled adults in the comfort of their own home.

    United for the future


    Now more than ever, America must come together around shared values, to build stronger communities and help every person. That’s why our United Way recently partnered with Peter Buffett, musician and philanthropist (and the youngest son of investor Warren Buffett) for a community conversation that engaged more people more deeply in lasting change.

    Small businesses make a big impact!


    Businesses are rooted in the community — and community involvement can be valuable for recruitment and retention of engaged employees for companies looking to make an impact on the future of our community. Learn how our new giving community can not only help build businesses, but employee morale too.

      Meet Sandrell and Rachel

      Sandrell, a single mother, enrolled her daughter Rachel at a young age in one of United Way’s partner agencies, the Girl Scouts of Tropical Florida. Rachel’s involvement has helped her prepare for the real world — even before she was able to understand what the real world was.
