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.

    COVID-19 Resources

    The novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) outbreak is now a major international pandemic affecting all our lives. The United Way is proactively monitoring and aggregating information and resources that are available to help Miami-Dade community members during this economic and public health crisis.

      Operation Helping Hands

      Through Operation Helping Hands, the community will be encouraged to support the collective Miami Pandemic Response Fund, which will support nonprofit service providers responding to the unprecedented COVID-19 pandemic, to address short-term impacts on vulnerable families and small businesses as well as build long-term economic resilience in Miami-Dade.

        Bringing smiles through Golden Wishes

        Golden Wishes celebrates our community’s older adults by granting wishes they have long longed for – from reconnecting with family members who live far away to having their tree trimmed or even getting a pair of new sneakers – we make wishes come true.

          COVID-19 hits as record number of families struggle

          The newly released ALICE (Asset Limited, Income Constrained, Employed) Report finds 54 percent of Miami-Dade households are living either in, or one emergency away from, poverty. Coupled with Covid-19, it sets the stage for an unprecedented economic crisis.


            Now more than ever, you can make a difference for Miami. 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.


              They have devoted their time. They have made a difference in the lives of those in need. Now, more than ever, our community appreciates the unsung heroes of Miami-Dade—our volunteers. Know someone who should be celebrated for their efforts? We are seeking nominations from individuals, community leaders and organizations for our 2020 Volunteer Awards.
