Every year our community faces hurricane season from June 1 through November 30, but planning and preparing can make a big difference. As the County’s official volunteer and fundraising partner, United Way of Indian River County will be here for our community before, during, and after a disaster. We hope we don’t have to face a hurricane or other emergency, but if we do, we need to be ready. Find the local resources you need to help keep you, your family, your home, and your pets safe.

community needs assessment

Recent studies were incorporated, and a wide range of subject matter experts provided input. Residents from across the County, representing some of the most economically challenged neighborhoods, explained directly what their needs were by filling out written surveys in English, Spanish, and Creole and by speaking up at focus groups. This Community Needs Assessment report results from that major collective effort.
