Welcome to our 2017 United Way Campaign

United Way strives to better the community by encouraging children to dream big and reach their potential in and out of school, empowering families and individuals to become financially stable and economically independent and improving people’s health.

By supporting the United Way, you are furthering the mission of our organization to build the community by helping people care for one another. We are here for our neighbors and each other -- bus drivers, fire fighters, sanitation workers, police, librarians, parks and recreation personnel -- always ready to provide a helping hand.

What we do

Changing lives is at the heart of what we do. With your help, together we can fight to build a stronger Miami by strengtheningn the education, financial stability and health of our co-workers, friends and neighbors.

About Us

We fight for a stronger Miami. We fight for you.

By fighting to build a stronger Miami, we’re keeping our most vulnerable families from being swept into a recurring cycle of poverty. Here are just a few of the programs and services that bring lasting change to our neighbors in need:

United Way Center for Excellence in Early Education: An internationally recognized demonstration school dedicated to elevating the quality of early care and education in Miami and beyond.

United Way Center for Financial Stability: Two one-stop centers that provide working individuals and families with a full range of services and support—from financial coaching to free tax preparation and benefits enrollment to employment assistance and credit counseling.

FamilyWize: A national prescription drug discount program for our community that can save enrollees an average of $23 per prescription.

Mission United: United Way’s newest initiative helps empower veterans and their families by connecting them to essential services and employment opportunities.
