United Way of Milford is a support system for thousands of Milford residents, working to move people from poverty to possibility. We work to improve peoples’ lives by strengthening our community from the inside out. Together we can build a stronger community for all. With our focus on impact, United Way has a key role to play in advocating for Education, Income and Health.
