United Way of Palm Beach County is Committed to Serving Those Who Have Served!
U.S. military veterans are some of our community’s greatest heroes! There are more than 84,000 veterans in Palm Beach County and United Way of Palm Beach County is committed to helping those who have served our country overcome challenges transitioning from active duty. Veterans can find themselves underemployed, unable to access physical and mental health treatment, or struggling to maintain adequate housing. Nearly 50% of veterans who need treatment for mental health conditions seek it, and only 50% of those receive minimally adequate care.
MISSION UNITED is an initiative led by United Way of Palm Beach County that supports navigation services for veterans and their families, connecting them to employment services, education, legal assistance, health care, affordable housing support, and other resources with a single entry point to the help they need. Veterans and their families can access these programs and resources through the 2-1-1 Helpline by calling 2-1-1 or texting your zip code to 898211.
United Way fights for the health, education and financial stability of every person in every community. Through MISSION UNITED, United Way of Palm Beach County and our partners serve those who served our country by ensuring veterans receive the support needed to lead fulfilling, healthy lives after completing military service.
