Mission United, a veteran-led United Way of Northeast Florida initiative, will help military veterans and their families acclimate back to civilian life by affording them the services and support they need. Operated through United Way 211, Mission United in Northeast Florida will provide navigation and care coordination at no charge to active duty military, veterans and their families. Mission United not only extends United Way’s current work serving the veteran and military population, it strengthens and expands these services by ensuring high efficiency and quality.

“While we do not necessarily lack veteran services here in Northeast Florida, we do lack coordination and awareness of these services in the veteran community. We believe Mission United and 211 can provide an easy, streamlined approach to serving our military and veteran families.”
