HOW IT WORKS
Everyone deserves opportunities to have a good life: a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health.
For nearly 60 years, United Way has worked to advance the common good as the most comprehensive health and human services organization in this community. United Way is a proven leader in addressing pressing community issues effectively and efficiently.
United Way of Indian River County runs a community-wide campaign raising money for critical human services, coordinates a Community Investment Process unique to United Way, provides emergency and special project grants, coordinates volunteer run programs, and runs the United Way Center which houses our Community Room, Board Room and a Non-profit Incubation Center.
United Way collaborates with local businesses, government, and non-profits to meet the most pressing social service issues in Indian River County, large and small. From working to solve over-arching needs such as accessible health care for low-income individuals to keeping children involved in positive, structured youth activities, United Way has a finger on the pulse of our community.
To LIVE UNITED means being a part of the change. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future.
United Way of Indian River County provides non-restrictive grant funding to health and human service organization programs based on their ability to impact areas of need identified by the United Way of Indian River County and its Vision Councils.
