Being an advocate for change is an essential component to achieving our mission and goals. And that mission is to work for needed change in education, financial stability and public health policies.

Our priorities

United Way’s public policy priorities are focused on three main areas:

  • Securing quality early care education to give all children the best possible start in school and in life
  • Empowering families and individuals to become financially stable and economically independent to prevent falling into poverty
  • Providing access to health care for all individuals

We can’t do it alone, so we work together with business and community leaders, local and state governments — AND YOU.

Your voice is the key to making real change happen. You can help influence decisions that impact at-risk families and children in our community.

Together, we can make it happen

United Way of Miami-Dade joined with 31 United Ways statewide to adopt the 2018 Florida United Way Consensus Legislative Agenda to speak with one voice on our state legislative priorities in early learning, financial stability and access to health care.
