Heart of Florida United Way (HFUW) is Central Florida’s most comprehensive health and human services charity and the largest provider of funds to the region’s most critical health and human service programs. Last year it raised and managed $24.3 million throughout Orange, Osceola and Seminole counties.
HFUW is working to advance the common good by focusing on education, income, health and safety. It also operates United Way 2-1-1 & Elder Helpline, Central Florida’s community crisis and suicide hotline and information and referral helpline; a Volunteer Resource Center; a Gifts In Kind Center; a Stewardship program that works with agencies to provide emergency assistance; and the Ryan White Part B program, which administers nearly $2 million to much needed HIV/AIDS services and referrals.
HFUW impacts more people annually than any other charity operating in the tricounty area, and partners with local businesses, government, other charities and individuals to increase awareness of local health and human service issues and to inspire hope, provide options and create possibilities for the people in our community.
