Mission United – A United Way Program to Serve Those Who Have Served

Mission United is a United Way program of United Way of Lake and Sumter Counties and while Mission United is dedicated to serves those who have served, it also provides a personal though that many of the Veterans Affairs options are simply unable to accommodate, often due to capacity.

Our Mission United team’s primary role is to help Veterans navigate the system of benefits available, whether by providing those options directly or connecting our Veterans to a resource for any of the following services:

  • Employment Services
  • Legal Assistance
  • Education
  • Financial Stability
  • Health Care
  • Stability Housing

More than 34,000 Veterans call Lake or Sumter County home. Whether they left the services years ago or are currently transitioning to civilian life, many struggle with the challenges of navigating a complex system of services and finding their place in the community. Our Mission United program is a collective effort that identifies gaps and creates systemic change in the area of health care access, education, and stability assistance.

For immediate and confidential assistance, call 2-1-1.
