Services exist to address many of these challenges, but they are not integrated. Eligibility requirements can be confusing and many veterans get discouraged when they get help. MISSION UNITED™ connects veterans and their families with real people whose job it is to say "yes".  By using 2-1-1, a 24/7 confidential community helpline, veterans and active duty service members get streamlined access to any of the following services: 

  • Employment Services
  • Legal Assistance
  • Education
  • Health Care
  • Stable Housing

MISSION UNITED is available in 20 United Way locations and growing.

The challenges that veterans face are too big and complex for any single organization to solve alone.  In each of the 1,100 communities we serve in the U.S., we have the relationships and the expertise needed to fight for lasting change that benefits everyone. Through MISSION UNITED we fight for those who fought for us. 

MISSION UNITED was created in 2013 by a veteran in conjunction with the United Way of Broward County, Florida. Since then, more than 12,000 veterans in Florida and New York have received essential assistance through the United Way MISSION UNITED program.
