During 2021-2022 United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties played a key role in the success of twenty-three programs that benefited our local community.

In the first year of a two-year funding cycle UWVFC granted $1,237,100.00 to support eighteen agencies. Issues funded ranged from homelessness, children, education, family support and more. These programs saw many successes including serving 2,644 children to meet developmental milestones, helping 88% of clients improve health outcomes and supporting 83% of clients to transition from homelessness to housing. UWVFC is proud to announce the award of $1,237,100 to our funded partners for 2022-2023.

“The United Way of Volusia-Flagler Counties’ Board of Directors are proud to award these funds to agencies in our community that provide essential services," said Dustin Smurdon, chairman of the board at United Way Volusia-Flagler Counties. "Despite the challenges our local non-profits have faced over the past few years the need for their services are stronger than ever. United Way continues to partner with these agencies to improve lives in Volusia and Flagler Counties.”

Through these grants many lives have been changed. Clients like Janessa at the Pace Center for Girls and Troy at the Volusia County Coalition for the Homeless benefited from programs supported by the United Way. To view Janessa and Troy story visit our website

These stories are only two of the thousands of lives changed thanks to United Way partnering with agencies around the local community.
