Stay safe before, during and after a storm
Every year our community faces the uncertainty of hurricane season from June 1 through November 30. Planning and preparing can make a big difference during these unprecedented times, especially in the wake of a hurricane.
Did you know? This past year through our United Way more than 1,200 individuals received shelter.
For many older adults in our community, getting a new pair of sneakers, seeing a long-lost relative again or transitioning to a smaller bed is just a wish. For Iris, it was a wish that came true through Golden Wishes, a special initiative for older adults 60+ who are unable to pursue a wish on their own.
Accepting applications: Quality early care and education
United Way Early Head Start-Child Care Partnership (EHS-CCP) is now accepting applications for the 2020-2021 school year for children age six weeks to three years. EHS-CCP is committed to providing high-quality early care and education to infants and toddlers as well as providing comprehensive services, including connecting families with community resources. Qualifying families can benefit from this at no cost. Various locations throughout Miami-Dade are available. For more information, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call (305) 631-7657.
Now more than ever, members of our community need to be counted. The 2020 Census determines the level of funding over the next decade for programs that support education, housing, transportation, emergency services, food assistance and more. The deadline has been extended to October 31. Our County self-response rate is only at 55.3%. We encourage you to submit your response online and urge others to do the same.
