UWFK is committed to supporting Keys residents already affected by COVID-19 related decreases in tourism and restrictions on businesses.
In light of COVID-19, we are tracking service changes by health and human services providers in Monroe County. Please click on the COVID-19 heading on our Community Resource Guide to find details.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19 to vulnerable citizens, we are cancelling our VITA tax preparation dates through the end of March.
In light of these closures, we are referring clients to MyFreeTaxes.com. Through United Way’s partnership with H&R Block, every household with a simple return can file their federal and state taxes for free.
The United Way of Collier and the Keys have announced a $3.5 million gift from the United Arab Emirates to restore 7 iconic reefs in the Florida Keys.
Here in the Keys, we know that the reef serves as the community’s backbone to protect our chain of islands from future storms and as the livelihood for many of our hard-working residents. Initiatives like this reef restoration project will serve these families by helping ensure their financial stability, a key focus of United Way’s mission.
We are excited to announce that United Way of the Florida Keys will be merging with United Way of Collier County, bringing us together as United Way of Collier and the Keys, in April 2020. Through this unification, it will allow the organization to increase operational efficiency, ultimately resulting in more resources available to improve the lives of struggling residents.
Money raised in the Keys community will serve the community as it always has, with existing local programs and funding to partner agencies continuing. Please call (305) 735-1929 or read more...
UWFK has been making a difference in the Keys community for more than 30 years, supporting strong working families through direct programs and in partnership with dedicated local nonprofits that provide critical services to Keys residents.
