Miami-Dade County's 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 strengthening the education, financial stability and health of our co-workers, friends and neighbors.
