Our Work

We bring hope and opportunity to those who need it most.

Creating a Community of Opportunity



Prior to COVID-19, one in three Northeast Florida households – including half of all children – were living in or on the brink of poverty. Today, many of these families are still struggling to make ends meet while faced with rising costs and declining resources.


But we envision a different future. 


At United Way, we’re working to create a community of opportunity where everyone has hope and can reach their full potential. We’ve set a long-term goal to improve economic mobility for all Northeast Florida residents and we’re investing in partners and programs that make it easier for people to break the cycle of poverty and live a better life.
