United Way Miami-Dade
Mission United- Warrior Resiliency Project
Florida is home to one of the largest populations of veterans in the nation; with 53,000 calling Miami-Dade County home. Many veterans report that getting re-socialized to civilian life is a top challenge; and that securing sustainable employment and reaching necessary resources are some of the biggest barriers to achieving financial stability. United Way of Miami-Dade’s Mission United program helps ease the transition to civilian life and addresses the unique needs of veterans during every transition. With this BWF grant, United Way Miami-Dade will decrease hunger and improve housing stability for 600 military/veteran households in the Miami-Dade area through food delivery and housing assistance.
