United Way of West Florida's Information and Referral Hotline, 211 Northwest Florida, recently had a veteran referred to them by the Red Cross. The 211 I&R Specialist recognized that information alone was not enough to help and connected the veteran to the Florida Veteran Support Line. 


Statement On Racism And Social Inequality


United Way of West Florida believes that every person is entitled to be treated with dignity and respect – this includes equal treatment and access to justice.


The recent events involving violence and threats against African Americans illuminate the severity of systemic racism and underlying prejudice in our country. We denounce these incidents as they are the antithesis of everything that United Way stands for.
