United Way - Message from the Mayor

Dear Employees,

Welcome to our 2019 United Way campaign! Get ready to turn your compassion into action and come together to show your deep commitment to the community by strengthening the education, financial stability and health of our co-workers, friends and neighbors.

By building a stronger Miami-Dade, 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-Dade 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.

Help individuals and families in Miami-Dade pave a way to a brighter future by making your pledge. With your help, together we can build a stronger Miami-Dade.
