Mission: United we fight for the education and financial stability of every person in our community.
Across the Suncoast, we seek out the tough problems— the ones others may shy away from. We find others who want to work with us to solve those problems. We raise money. We put boots on the ground. We lend our voices. We go to the overlooked places and help those who need it most. United, we fight to ensure every child gets the support they need, right from the start, to graduate prepared for college or career. United, we fight so that our neighbors can break the cycle of poverty and achieve financial stability. United, we fight to rally and organize committed volunteers who want to put their talents to work to build a more caring community. United, we fight for the education and financial stability of every person in our community. Because change doesn’t happen alone. Hope isn’t a one-man band. And there’s no such thing as self-taught or self-made. We have one life. To live better, we must Live United.
