United Way Launches Veteran's Coalition


United Way of the Ocoee Region is launching a new coalition centered around America’s bravest - our men and women who have served in the military. Mission United is a community-wide initiative mobilizing and aligning private and public leaders and resources to support veterans and returning military service members in Bradley and Polk Counties. 

By leveraging community strengths and filling gaps in the human services network, Mission United will establish a comprehensive system of veteran care through a collaborative effort of numerous organizations working together to identify and address the needs of veterans and create sustainable solutions in the Bradley and Polk County community.

The goal of United Way’s Mission United is to help military veterans and their families successfully re-acclimate back to civilian life by making access to much needed resources easier. Mission United is meant to inspire and mobilize communities to connect veterans and their families to multiple community-based, critical human services based on their need. Mission United aims to help veterans and their families feel the support and gratitude of their community.

“Our veterans have proudly served us. United Way is proud to partner with them and fight for their access to services that offer a healthy and financially stable civilian life,” says Danielle Seals, who will be leading the initiative. United Way plans to forge partnerships and inspire the community to work together and coordinate efforts to help veterans re-acclimate back into their communities through Mission United.

The United Way connects people to community by bringing stakeholders together to address the crisis and chronic issues our community faces. We fight to find solutions to these issues in education, health, and stability by connecting our community to the needs and resources available.
