Empowering growth, delivering hope, impacting change

Loaned from Miami-Dade County office this year, our distinct group of loaned executives play an important role in United Way’s annual fundraising campaign. Meet this diverse group of trusted leaders lending their time, talent and expertise in helping spread our mission and message across the community.

“In our time here, we have networked with various people in our community, shared experiences with new friends, and created an environment that reflects what United Way Miami does for its community. I am excited to give back to my Miami in ways that I hope I can show others. My hope in navigating this experience is to gain the insight necessary to properly share information on behalf of United Way Miami to my staff back in Miami-Dade County.”

“What I look forward to the most from the Loaned Executive experience is the opportunity to help those in need and give back to the Miami community—looking forward to making a difference and being a part of such a wonderful organization.  I am excited to be a lifelong advocate for the United Way Miami mission!”

Meet Christina “Christy” Lopez
Miami-Dade Regulatory & Economic Resources

“Participating in the LE program was a very special and gratifying experience for me. It gave me the opportunity to advocate for the United Way and the many amazing programs they fund to help and sustain our community. While working as an LE I became aware that I myself had been helped by the United Way through some of the agencies they fund. It was during the recession of 2009, a difficult time in my life as a new single mom. I am forever grateful and cannot forget how they were present for me, came to my timely aid as they do for so many others in their time of need. I will always support this great charitable and well organized institution and share my United Way story with others to inspire them to support and give back to our Miami-Dade community.”
