MISSION UNITED

Proudly Serving

those who have served

Many Veterans returning home from service struggle as they acclimate to civilian life. After realizing this critical need, United Way of Broward County created MISSION UNITED to support Veterans as they begin the next chapter of their lives. Your generous support provides Veterans and their families with vital services.
