Investing in Results
Heart of Florida United Way is moving in a bold direction focused on prevention. Building on our tradition of helping millions of Central Floridians since 1939, we're now addressing the root causes of problems that affect people's lives and our community. Our goal is to create lasting, measurable change – not just for today, but for generations to come.
Focusing on Prevention
We know that even with great work by United Way and our agency partners – as well as tremendous generosity from our community – health and human service problems have continued to grow and compound. Not only is prevention the right thing to do for people, it also makes smart economic sense.
Research shows that for every dollar spent on prevention, a minimum of $7 is saved on intervention.
Therefore, Heart of Florida United Way has put a stake in the ground and is declaring bold goals to find long-term solutions for our community’s most pressing problems.
