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.

    Celebrating a milestone for financial stability

    Just 10 years ago, during one of the most uncertain financial times in the history of this country, the United Way Center for Financial Stability was created based on a community need. Launched in partnership with Branches in October of 2009, the Center has helped thousands of families find their way.

        Miami-Dade families save big

        More than 520,000 households are struggling to make ends meet in Miami-Dade. Because of this, tough choices are made every day, and staying up to date with medications can be a difficult task. Through our partnership with FamilyWize, over 150,000 members of the community have saved more than $15 million on prescription medications.

          Staying fresh in Miami’s ever-growing mental health landscape

          Citrus Health Network, a United Way of Miami-Dade impact partner for over 25 years, started as a mental health center in 1979. Since then, its services have grown exponentially and continue to diversify. Two funded programs in particular are making major strides at serving our community’s most vulnerable.

            Feeding our families

            For those of our neighbors who earn just above the Federal Poverty Level but can barely cover the basics, food insecurity can be a real issue. With your support, our United Way Community Cupboard has found a way to feed our community’s families when they have needed it most.

              Fight for a stronger Miami. Join us now.

              Our work impacts lives by replacing vulnerability with empowerment, poverty with opportunity and despair with hope. As we celebrate our 95th year, we continue to fight for the education, financial stability and health of every person in our community. All it takes is a little help from you to make a big difference.

                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.
