IT’S OUR TURN TO SERVE THOSE
WHO’VE SERVED OUR COUNTRY

Making the transition from active duty to civilian life can pose its own set of unique challenges to veterans and their families. From feeling isolated and discouraged to confronting issues with homelessness, joblessness or access to treatment for mental health issues or substance abuse, the needs of some veterans can be complex. That’s where we come in.

We’re Mission United in Miami – a single point of entry for veterans to access the help they need, at no cost. Mission United helps ease the transition to civilian life and address the unique needs of veterans. By connecting them to a coordinated network of community partners, we empower veterans and their families to lead productive lives in our community. Services include job training and opportunities, affordable housing, legal resources and more.
