Heart of Florida United Way 


A baby born with developmental disabilities, a senior who can no longer drive or prepare meals, a family that is struggling to find affordable housing – these are a few of the more than 400,000 Central Floridians who were served last year by Heart of Florida United Way (HFUW) supported programs.

Founded in 1939, HFUW is Central Florida’s largest supporter of local health and human service agencies. In 2012-13 it managed more than $24.5 million dollars in total resources, including $17.55 Million raised during the about_us_yingcenter.jpgannual campaign that helps fund nearly 70 local health and human service programs.


It also operates the United Way 2-1-1 information and referral helpline, the United Way Volunteer Resource Center, the Gifts in Kind Center, the Ryan White Part B/General Revenue Program and the Stewardship program. 


United Way is also focused on prevention and finding long-term solutions for pressing problems. Known as Investing in Results, the initiative is guiding our work to move the needle in four critical impact areas:  

  • Developing Healthy Children and Families
  • Building Safe Communities through Education
  • Improving Financial Stability
  • Alleviating Hunger and Homelessness


To improve lives by mobilizing the caring power of our communities.



To engage all citizens to work together to build healthy, safe, caring, and strong communities.
