MISSION UNITED: Enhancing Veteran Resources in Southeast Florida

Posted May 17, 2024

MISSION UNITED was first started by United Way of Broward County over ten years ago and is now spread to many locations across Florida and throughout the nation. The three United Ways in Southeast Florida (United Way of Palm Beach County, Broward County, and Miami) are working together on many veteran issues. It is in this spirit of collaboration that we are asking for all veterans to participate in the survey linked below.

The survey should take no more than 10 minutes but will be worth so much as we collaboratively work towards addressing the needs of the veteran community in South Florida. Take the time to fill it out, pass the link along, and let’s get as many responses as we can!
