Statement From United Way of Broward County

Due to concerns for public safety in regard to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), United Way of Broward County has made all events virtual, the 2020 Behavioral Health Conference has been cancelled, save the date for next years, May 11th and 12th, 2021.

At the same time, we are working to support our funded partners and to assess the needs of the community we serve, and are poised to provide assistance in a variety of areas.  

In addition, we continue to actively monitor novel coronavirus updates from Broward County and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and will continue to respond based on the best advice of governments, public health authorities and medical professionals.
