We all succeed when a child succeeds in school.  A quality education is the basis for personal and community success.

47% of Volusia County households are working but not making enough to afford basic needs such as housing, food, transporations and childcare.  Meanwhile, millions of dollars in Earned Income Tax Credits go unclaimed each year and predatory lending practices make it harder for working families to get ahead.  United Way invests in local programs to help families earn, keep and save their hard earned money so they can worry about other things. 

Local Programs & Initiatives:  

VITA: Free Income Tax Program, Campaign for Working Families, Financial Literacy Workshops, and more!





Our priority is to improve awareness and access to health and wellness related resources and services; to provide everyone the opportunity for a healthy life.  We've also expanded our 2-1-1 service to include even more health and wellness programs and services.
