ABOUT MISSION UNITED
Mission United is a critical funding source for programs of United Way of Long Island supporting U.S. military veterans and their families on Long Island as they re-acclimate to civilian life. Mission United funding helps provide services and resources in job training, employment assistance and emergency financial aid.
Through Mission United, United Way of Long Island is aligning existing services and creating solutions where there are gaps in support. The need for these services is particularly significant on Long Island as we have more than 95,000 veterans living in our communities. In the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak, a significant portion of veterans are seniors who have become isolated and especially vulnerable; in addition nearly 2,000 veterans are attending colleges, but many have young families and are struggling to get by.
