2013 REPORT
to the community
United Way of Miami-Dade: At-a-glance
At United Way, we are focused on creating opportunities for a better life for all right here in Miami-Dade County. We
work in three key areas – education, financial stability and health – which are the building blocks for a good quality
of life. We invest in quality programs, we advocate for policies that improve lives, we partner with individuals and
organizations to find solutions to emerging community issues. Most importantly, we offer help and hope to tens of
thousands of people each and every year.
Vision
We will have a caring community strengthened by its
diversity and compassion. United Way will be seen as
a catalyst in building community by bringing hearts,
minds and resources together.
Mission
Building community by helping people care for
one another.

About us
Innovative
National reputation as a leader in innovation. Two recent
examples: the United Way Center for Excellence in Early
Education and the United Way Center for Financial Stability
with the bold goals of changing the system of early
childhood education and helping our neighbors pave a
path to financial independence.
Responsive
Time and again, our United Way has demonstrated its
ability to react quickly in response to challenges whether
in our own backyard, in a neighboring community or
country. Helping newly arrived immigrants begin a
new life, our community recover after a category five
hurricane or the people of Haiti rebuild following the 2010
earthquake are just some examples.
Results-driven
Among the ways we help make Miami a more educated,
prosperous and healthy community is by investing in 119
programs at 58 impact partner agencies that achieve real
and measurable results. Trained community volunteers
make program investment decisions as well as monitor
their performance to ensure outcomes are delivered.
Return on investment
In an ever-changing environment of limited funding,
maximizing the return on each and every dollar is a
top priority. By leveraging all of our assets – securing
matching grants, engaging volunteers, influencing public
policy, generating grants and in-kind support – our United
Way turns every $1 to the community plan into $2.17
worth of help to people in Miami-Dade.
Community leader
As a respected community consensus-builder, our United
Way is frequently asked to assume a leadership role on
important issues. Many staff and volunteers hold key
positions with various community organizations and
provide expertise on a broad range of subject matters
including early education, social services, philanthropy,
advocacy and community engagement.
Trustworthy
We take our role as stewards of contributor dollars
seriously. There is nothing more important than the
trust our contributors place in us. That’s why we’ve
institutionalize strict governance practices. They include
volunteer oversight at every level – from our own financial
statements and annual independent audit to those of the
programs we fund.
Each and every day, we are working to
strengthen our community by improving the
education, financial stability and health of our
residents. In this report, you’ll learn about much
of our work undertaken this past year – work that
was made possible thanks to the generosity of our
donors and the outstanding commitment of our
partners. Together, we are preparing children and
youth for success in school and life, we are helping
families become financially secure and we are
improving people’s health.
As a community, we have many reasons to be proud
and even more to be hopeful. We thank you for
joining us in this work and, for LIVING UNITED.
Sincerely,
Jayne Harris Abess
Board Chair Harve A. Mogul
President and CEO

Making strides by promoting quality early care
and education
Focusing on professional development for early
childhood professionals is central to the United
Way Center for Excellence in Early Education’s
mission of making high-quality early education a
reality for all children in Miami-Dade and beyond.
In December 2012, a 3-year, $3.5 million early
reading federal grant from the U.S. Department
of Education, which resulted in the innovative
Literacy Enhancement for Early Readers, or
Project LEER, came to an end. With knowledge
gained through this initiative, the Center
partnered with The Children’s Trust to develop
a new early reading program called MAESTRO
(Mentoring All Educators, Supporting Teachers,
Raising Outcomes). Through a combination
of group training and one-on-one coaching,
MAESTRO works with teachers in “low-performing
voluntary prekindergarten classrooms” to improve
their literacy instruction skills and, in turn, helps
students enter kindergarten ready to learn and
achieve long-term academic success.
Now in its sixth year, the Center’s professional
development program, Early Childhood Program
Administrator’s Institute (ECPAI) – a partnership
with The
Children’s
Trust, The Early
Childhood
Initiative
Foundation, Wells
Fargo Foundation,
Quality Counts
Career Center,
and Miami
Dade College
– has provided
more than 300
early care and education administrators the
opportunity to expand their knowledge of current
philosophies, build leadership skills, and receive
higher credentials through a series of collegelevel courses and mentoring.
A first-ever South Florida Early Literacy
Conference, hosted by the Center, brought
together more than 300 early childhood
education administrators, specialists and
teachers from across the U.S. and Latin America.
A LIFE CHANGED: Keyshawn
Keyshawn is a bright young boy with an even brighter future.
Helping him along that path is The Barnyard, a United
Way-funded after-school and summer program at Coconut
Grove Cares that provides at-risk children with educational,
recreational and cultural activities year-round. Keyshawn is one
of four siblings, and attends G.W. Carver Elementary. At The
Barnyard, he enjoys a safe studying environment, where he can
complete his homework while his mother is at work. Keyshawn
says he has big dreams – he wants to become “a lawyer, then
a judge and then, president.”

Financial counseling and coaching
Key outcomes:
Nearly 5,700 individuals received financial education and counseling on basic
budgeting, credit card management, first-home purchasing assistance and foreclosure prevention
Nearly 5,000 individuals with disabilities received job training and employment through
a United Way-funded program at Goodwill Industries that generated $29,029,845 in wages
Helped 7,719 tax filers receive more than $10.8 million in tax refunds and
credits through the EITC (earned income tax credit), in a public awareness campaign partnership
with Bank of America, Walmart and Branches as well as services provided at the United Way Center
for Financial Stability
More than 4,000 individuals and families benefited from financial services provided at
the United Way Center for Financial Stability

linking financial stability to academic success
Can improving one’s financial stability improve
their academic success? Philanthropists Al and
Barbara Siemer believe it can . . . and they are
putting their resources behind it to prove the case.
When the United Way Center for Financial Stability
opened in 2009, our United Way was one of 10 in
the country to receive a 3-year $150,000 grant from
the Siemer Institute for Family Stability (SIFS) to
focus on reducing student mobility by improving a
family’s financial stability. Students who frequently
change schools do not perform as well as those
who do not. One of the primary reasons families
move is because of their financial situation –
which is what led the Siemers to create the Family
Stability Initiative. This past year, the Center
received a second, 3-year $225,000 grant from
SIFS to not only continue the program in Miami
but to become part of a national network helping
to expand the program
in other communities
with the intent
of creating national
change.
The Siemer Institute for
Family Stability is a key
partner of our United
Way Center for Financial
Stability, providing
financial support for our
work in helping working
families pave a path to
financial independence.
The Siemers were
presented with the 2012
National Tocqueville
Society Award by United
Way Worldwide.
A LIFE CHANGED: debra
When Debra’s marriage fell apart, she was left with five
children to raise, a mountain of debt and no money. With an
imminent eviction looming in her horizon, she was referred
to the United Way Center for Financial Stability by Jewish
Community Services. Debra had a good idea of all the things
she wanted to accomplish and with the help of her financial
coach, she was able to create a sound plan. As a result, Debra
resolved a tax issue, set up a budget, started paying down all
her debts and registered for classes at Miami Dade College.

HEALTH
IMPROVING PEOPLE’S HEALTH
What we invest in:
Access to the health care system | Preventive health screenings | HIV/AIDS education and testing |
Help with daily living and nutritious meals for older adults | Caregiver respite and support | Counseling
for families | Parent education | Child abuse and neglect prevention | Support for children in foster care
| Services for domestic violence victims
Key outcomes:
More than 10,600 individuals, including children, received hearing, dental, breast, HIV/AIDS
and heart screenings through United Way-funded programs
9,430 older adults were provided with community-based home care services, personal care,
emergency and basic care services that allowed them to remain living indepenently
Miami-Dade residents saved more than $5 million on prescription

A NEW APPROACH TO ACHIEVING OUTCOMES
Committed to improving the education, financial stability
and health of Miami-Dade residents, United Way embarked
on an in-depth 12-month process to determine how to
achieve the best outcomes in light of today’s environment
of increased needs and limited resources.
Over the past 18 months staff and volunteers invested
hundreds of hours visiting other United Ways, gathering
best practices from across the country, meeting with
local subject matter experts and other community
organizations and rolling up their sleeves to tackle tough
questions: How bold should United Way be in setting
community goals? How can all of United Way assets
4
be more strategically
integrated to achieve
community goals? How
can United Way financial
investments more
strategically support
community goals?
5
In December 2012, the board approved a new collective
impact approach that will better utilize all United
Way’s assets and share accountability with other key
community institutions and partners in the achievement
of community-level goals going forward. Following
the board’s approval, volunteers and staff spent the
spring hosting listening sessions to hear concerns and
aspirations from people in the community and writing
research briefs that painted the current landscape for
education, financial stability and health in Miami-Dade.
A May symposium brought together volunteers where they
heard from various community partners about the needs,
trends, policy issues and best practices in each of the
three areas. This was an initial step in the planning work
that will continue over the next few months.
A LIFE CHANGED: Claudia
Shortly after Claudia’s father passed away, her mother
Leila was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s. Claudia’s life took
a dramatic turn, where she found she had to divide
her time among her children, her husband and her
rapidly declining mother. Finding it difficult to meet her
mother’s growing needs and spend time with her family,
Claudia reached out to United HomeCare Services. The
agency provided Claudia with an in-home caregiver who
spends time with her mother, feeds her and caters to
her needs a few hours a week. This gives Claudia some
peace of mind and extra time to dedicate to her family.

GIVE
Across Miami-Dade County, residents opened their hearts,
and as a result, total revenues for United Way reached
$46.5 million.
Publix Super Markets maintained its spot as United Way of Miami-Dade’s top campaign, exceeding
the $2 million mark in giving for the first time. Miami-Dade County Public Schools, its students
and bargaining units, are again the leading public school campaign in the country. Rounding out
the exclusive group of million dollar-plus campaigns are Baptist Health System; Florida Power &
Light and IBEW Local 359; Miami-Dade County and its bargaining units; and University of Miami.

service to community. Hawn, who founded The
Hawn Foundation noted, “The private sector is
an extraordinary group to belong to, because
we have the power to change.”
Young Leaders put in a full year of volunteering,
networking and just having some plain fun
while doing good for the community. Among
the many activities was an evening cruise
along Biscayne Bay that raised money in
support of United Way’s work in the community
and a hands-on volunteer experience at Paul
Laurence Dunbar K – 8 Center.

wife Lourdes was a great success, generating
more than $1.1 million. On one night more
than 1,000 of Miami’s business and community
leaders came together in the spirit of
philanthropy and community.
Lisa and Victor Mendelson opened up
their historic Coconut Grove home to host
the Tocqueville Society Grand Reception.

A two-night charity cruise aboard Celebrity
Cruises’ Reflection offered a unique and funfilled experience, including the ship’s naming
ceremony, for 500 United Way guests and raised
more than $550,000.
More than 3,500 guests experienced the very best of Miami’s
wine and food scene at VeritageMiami (formerly known as the
United Way Miami Wine & Food Festival). The four-day gathering
featured a Craft Beer Tasting at Wynwood Walls, a Fine Wine
Tasting at Village of Merrick Park, an Interactive Dinner at the JW
Marriott Marquis Miami and an Auction & Wine Dinner at the Orion
Jet Center. “In rebranding our annual wine and food festival to
VeritageMiami, we wanted to create a more engaging experience
for our guests that really brought together the wine, food and
philanthropic communities,” His Royal Corkscrew Richard Fain, chair
of VeritageMiami, said.
A Lifetime of Giving
At 90 years of age, Jay Kislak is the senior statesman of United
Way’s Tocqueville Society. His involvement with United Way
of Miami-Dade, both as a contributor and volunteer, dates
back some 60 years when the organization was known as the
Community Chest. In 1962, Jay chaired what was then called the
United Fund campaign.
Today, he and his wife Jean, continue their philanthropy, both in
Miami and beyond. For them, giving to others comes naturally,
and seeing the results of their generosity is an immeasurable
reward. They are proud of the expansive reach that United Way of
Miami-Dade has and how inclusive the organization remains.

ADVOCATE
When the state legislative session concluded this spring,
our United Way, together with the statewide United Way
network, had reason to be proud as three of our four
priorities scored successful outcomes.
This past fall,
United Way
teamed up with
The Children’s
Movement to
encourage voter
registration
and turn out.
Information on
United Way’s
website and other
social media
channels made
it easy for local
residents to sign
up to vote, find out
about voting times
and locations, and
learn more about
key ballot issues.
10
Top on the list was the passage of a comprehensive early
learning bill that included a $5.1 million increase in funding
– the first increase in a decade – to address the waiting list
of nearly 70,000 children statewide. In Miami-Dade, that
translates to an increase of $2.2 million to serve an additional
700 children. Other wins included an increase in funding for
programs that help the frail elderly and the homeless.
United Way’s public policy director was on the ground
in Tallahassee for eight weeks, meeting with education
and appropriations committee chairs and staff during the
development of the early learning bill and budget request,
testifying at committee hearings and providing weekly blogs
and legislative summaries to keep us informed on the key
issues.
With our partners
at the Health
Foundation of
South Florida and
the Health Council
of South Florida,
along with State
Senator Rene
Garcia and State
Representative
Eddy Gonzalez,
United Way hosted a legislative forum on Medicaid Expansion.
The purpose was to inform Florida policy makers about the
fiscal impact of Medicaid expansion under federal healthcare
reforms and to discuss a Georgetown Health Policy Institute
study that indicates Medicaid expansion under the Affordable
Health Care Act could save the state money. Dr. Jack Hoadley,
senior researcher at Georgetown Health Policy Institute and
national expert on state Medicaid budget issues, presented
some of the findings from the Georgetown study.
As a preview to the legislative
session, United Way hosted
an informational session
for volunteers, community
partners, impact partner
agencies and their boards.
United Way of Florida
President Ted Granger and Bob
Levy, a political consultant,
shared their insights on some
of the key issues before the
legislature as well as some of
the key players.

In May, a group of United Way Women Leaders traveled to Washington,
D.C. to advocate on behalf of quality early care and education. Over
the course of two days, the group met with U.S. Representatives
Joe Garcia, Patrick Murphy, Nita Lowey, Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, Debbie
Wasserman-Schultz and Frederica

Wilson and Senator Bill Nelson to
encourage increased funding for
early education initiatives. The

How important is Head
Start to young children?
Three parents, whose
children attend the
United Way Center for
Excellence in Early
Education Demonstration
School, Educare of
Miami-Dade, through Head Start funding, visited the
district offices of their United States Representatives and
Senators to tell them their stories.
Luis, a single father of two: “Head Start provided
a lifeline for me after my wife passed away. I was
unemployed and felt like I didn’t have the resources
to care for my family. Not only did Head Start provide
the funding so my daughters could attend United Way’s
early learning center, but it also helped me find a trade
school so I could learn auto mechanics and get therapy
for my son.”
Deveni, a mother of two: “I placed my children in the
Early Head Start program since I was unemployed. While
in the program, I was able to look for employment and
the teachers and staff in the program helped my daughter,
who has special needs, get the necessary therapy.”
Jessica, a mother of a son: “I had been told that
because my son had Asperger’s and low muscle tone, he
would never walk or be able to participate in a regular
classroom. I enrolled at United Way through Head
Start and there the staff and teachers worked with us
to provide him with all the therapies he needed and
accommodations in the classroom. Today, my son walks,
runs, plays with his peers and this fall will go to a gifted
classroom for kindergarten.”

VOLUNTEER
Engaging volunteers in the community and the work of
United Way continues to be a top priority and this past
year that engagement took on many different forms and
fashions – from employee volunteer projects, to community
listening sessions, to 5K runs and much more.

In 2011, United Way launched a volunteer reader program,
and Sharon Fine and Cindy McCall-Talbert were among the
first to become involved. Two years later, they are joined
by more than 200 readers across Miami-Dade County. The
program, now called ReadingPals, is made possible by a
grant from Carol Jenkins Barnett and Barney Barnett from
Publix Super Market Charities, and is designed to enhance
literacy opportunities for young children, instill the love
of reading at a young age, and to educate volunteers
about the needs in our community.

Rep. Fresen’s strong
leadership during Florida’s
2013 Legislative session led
to a $5.1 million increase in
Florida’s “School Readiness” program, the first
such increase in a decade. As a result, Miami-Dade
will receive an additional $2.1 million to provide
child care services for hundreds of young children
of working, low-income families.

2012-2013 United Way program funding
Among the ways our United Way helps make Miami a more educated, prosperous and healthy community is by investing in 119
programs at 58 impact partners that achieve measurable results. Program investment decisions are made by trained community
volunteers from a variety of professional backgrounds, based on community needs, strategic objectives, programmatic outcomes, and
agency governance and stewardship practices. See page 38 for more information on agency and program accountability measures.
In addition to the investments listed below, some individuals chose to direct their gifts to a single agency. More than 1,600

How susan AND RUSH NORTON LIVE UNITED
24
An accomplished attorney, Susan Potter Norton has been a trailblazer in Miami-Dade, serving
our community with distinction as chair of the Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, as
president of the Orange Bowl Committee and as chair of the first $50 million United Way
campaign. “I became involved because I thought I should give something back, I stayed
involved because I received so much more than I gave,” Susan said. Over the years, she
introduced her son, Robert, better known as Rush, to the work of United Way. He now serves
on the United Way Young Leaders Executive Committee, focused on engaging more young
professionals in volunteerism and service. “Seeing how Young Leaders continues to become
a more impactful and premiere young professional organization gives me quite a bit of
satisfaction. The stronger we are, the more we can do for others and, in the end that is the
name of the game,” Rush said.

How Nelly and Mike Farra LIVE UNITED
Nelly and Mike Farra are long-standing Miami residents who care deeply about the education
and health of their neighbors. Within their own family, they have created a culture that
places a high value on education and they each volunteer time in support of educationrelated causes. Nelly and Mike are particularly passionate about the work of the United
Way Center for Excellence in Early Education. Nelly envisions a future where the education
system, from start to finish, is more imaginative and where more of our neighbors, those
with school-aged children and those without, take a more active role. “It takes a village,”
says Nelly, acknowledging that every person in our community can and should play a part
— from helping in the classroom, assisting teachers to be more prepared for the challenges
they face each day, and just talking about education as an issue in our community.

How Maria Blet LIVES UNITED
While working at her first job at Northern Trust, Maria saw a United Way campaign poster
and committed to give a dollar a day. Every year since, she has committed to increasing
her gift. In late 2002, Maria became a leadership giver and attended her first Women’s
Leadership Breakfast. While attending the event, she realized that it was more than just
a breakfast — it was an organized women’s movement. After serving in a variety of roles
and recruiting legions of women to participate locally, Maria was recruited into national
service. Today, she is the incoming chair of United Way Worldwide’s Women’s Leadership
Council, a position she assumes with great “honor, pride and respect. I’m excited about
helping to lead a movement of engaged women who are passionate about improving
their communities,” Maria said.

How Bettie Thompson LIVES UNITED
When Bettie Thompson decided to move to Miami with her daughter Stefanie, she was
looking to raise her in a more diverse cultural environment. And that’s what Bettie found
in the place she has called home for more than 20 years and where she, too, found her
place at the culturally diverse Miami Dade College (MDC). Bettie has served as MDC’s
campaign coordinator for the past 15 years, and her love for our community continues
to grow and the impact of her work, raising a total of more than $1.2 million for United
Way, will surely be felt for years to come. Passing on the same values to her daughter
Stefanie, an MDC and Barry University graduate, that she learned from her mother is how
Bettie Thompson LIVES UNITED.

Our commitment To our community
At United Way of Miami-Dade, we take our role as stewards of contributor dollars very seriously. There is nothing more
important than the trust our contributors place in us. We have institutionalized strict governance practices designed to
maximize our community impact and ensure the highest standards of operational efficiency and effectiveness. A local board
of directors comprised of business leaders from major corporations, organizations and philanthropists. A volunteer-led
community investment process combined with advocacy efforts, in-kind giving and matching grants produces a return on
investment of $2.17 for every $1 contributed to our community plan.
• Reporting and compliance requirements for each
program funded by United Way of Miami-Dade that
includes an annual unqualified opinion by independent
auditors; adherence to all federal, state and local
laws; maintenance of appropriate governance, financial
and service records; written conflict of interest, non
discrimination, equal employment and continuity
of operations plans; a commitment to delivering
measurable outcomes, among other criteria.
• United Way of Miami-Dade staff conducts a yearly
program evaluation of funded programs and provide
training and on-going technical assistance.
• Our audit committee, consisting of accountants and
other technical volunteers, conducts an in-depth
annual review of agency financial statements.
• Three independent volunteer groups — the finance and
administration committee, the executive committee,
and the board — conduct a monthly review of our
financial statements and an annual review of our
audited financial statements and the Internal Revenue
Service tax form 990.
• An investments committee meets regularly to review
financial market performance and to make asset
allocation decisions, with the goal of preserving and
growing the value of our general and endowment fund
assets to maximize the current and future benefit to
the community.
• A gift acceptance committee advises United Way of
Miami-Dade staff regarding complex or innovative
gifts.
• An executive compensation committee reviews and
recommends CEO and other executive compensation
and benefits.
