Women United is an affinity group of United Way of St. Lucie County that was started in August 2018. The purpose of this group is to bring women together to contribute their personal passions, best ideas, and unique strengths to the mission of building stronger communities. The events consist of recruitment mixers, Lunch and Learns, and volunteer opportunities to engage the women in the community. Currently, the group is focused on a wide range of community issues such as children’s mental health, children’s homelessness, and disaster relief.
United Way of St. Lucie County encourages people to LIVE UNITED by giving to the annual campaign, spreading the word about the positive impact United Way is making in our community and volunteering to make our community a better place for us all. We support numerous programs that enhance the lives of children.
