Guiding our community through tax season and heart health month
  Tax season is the time to strengthen working families

Tax season shouldn’t be a scary time for low-to-moderate income families. It should be a time where they can file their taxes for free, claim all appropriate tax credits and learn more about financial coaching, tools and resources.

  February is American Heart Health Month

Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United States for both men and women. Fortunately, it is also one of the most preventable. Having regular check-ups and maintaining heart health are key to keeping this silent killer at bay. This past year, a total of 19,467 screenings, tests and assessments have been conducted through United Way supported programs.

  Meet Mary
At 91 years old, Mary refuses to “feel invisible.” For the past 18 years, Mary wakes up early every morning and proudly goes to work at Southwest Social Services, a United Way funded program that helps low-income, older adults receive nutritious meals, participate in exercise and educational classes and most importantly, keep their social calendar filled with lots of exciting fiestas and events.

Like many other older adults in our community, Mary is determined to live a fulfilling, independent life and age with a little dignity…and a lot of fun!

Thank you Mary for helping us fight for a stronger Miami and never, ever quitting.

"We cannot do anything alone. Every action we take, whether we are aware or not, is impacting others. If we are humbly able to improve the living conditions of children and the elderly, leading them towards independence and healthy habits, we will in turn, improve the life of everyone in our community including parents, caretakers, co-workers, colleagues, and ourselves.

If you want to teach your children and loved ones about how to grow responsibly in a community, there is nothing more effective than showing them your example by serving."
  Watch how we're putting your dollars to work every day in our community.  
  Stay updated on exciting, fun United Way upcoming events.
