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.
