Our Work Promoting Financial Stability
United Way supports a network of basic services in our community; shelter, meals, childcare, counseling, medical support,
and helping people meet their urgent needs today. But it’s more than a quick fix, we are committed to giving people the tools
they need to stand on their own tomorrow. Our approach is thoughtful, strategic and driven by the concerns and efforts of
those living in Indian River County.
