The Leo Goodwin Foundation has made a significant Capital Campaign contribution to the Jean and David Colker Center that will be built on the campus of the United Way of Broward County. The MISSION UNITED project broke ground in 2015 and upon its completion, will serve as a centralized location where military service members, veterans and their families will have a place to receive case management services provided by MISSION UNITED. This critical campaign program will help these individuals re-acclimate to civilian lift. Their key focus areas include employment, education, health, legal assistance, emergency financial aid, and housing.
The Leo Goodwin Foundation agreed to make a $100,000 challenge grant contribution for the Center. When it opens, The Center will initially be a facility to house “MISSION UNITED” and veteran services. The name “Leo Goodwin Foundation” will appear permanently and prominently in the reception zone of the Center.
United Way of Broward County created MISSION UNITED and partnered with American Red Cross to align existing military services and create develop programs where there are gaps in support. For more information, please visit www.MissionUnited.org.
