Disaster preparation and response

Disaster preparation and response 2018-04-03T13:58:19+00:00

Time and again, our United Way has played a key role in helping people and communities recover and rebuild after a crisis. Working with our community partners, we offer a variety of services to ensure that those who will be or have been affected by a disaster get the help they need as quickly and efficiently as possible.

In addition to responding to crisis in Miami-Dade, our United Way created a partnership with the Miami Herald/el Nuevo Herald and others called Operation Helping Hands. The purpose of Operation Helping Hands is to provide people in South Florida an efficient and trusted way to respond to disasters in other parts of the world.
