United Against Poverty is a registered 501c3 nonprofit with campuses in Indian River County, Orlando, and St. Lucie County Florida. Our mission is to serve those in poverty by providing crisis care, case management, transformative education, food and household subsidy, employment training and active referrals to other collaborative social service providers.

United Against Poverty Orlando was founded to notice the hundreds of thousands of people in need who were going unnoticed in Central Florida. At the time, there was not a widespread definition of the population we have now come to know as the working poor, but it was clear that a new approach was needed to help lift up our neighbors in need. Our hand UP, not handout model began with a Member Share Grocery Program, which offered much-needed dignity for families. Its popularity quickly grew, and, as traffic to our campus increased, program participants expressed a need for additional on-site services. Our organization evolved from simply helping families put food on the table to becoming a “one stop shop” where those in need can turn to for food and household subsidy, crisis care, educational opportunities, employment training and placement, and the opportunity to break free from the cycle of poverty—once and for all.

United Against Poverty has campuses in Orlando, Indian River County, and St. Lucie County. Our Success Training Employment Program (STEP) and our Member Share Grocery Centers, along with crisis care and continuing education opportunities, provide a holistic 360-degree approach to offering a hand up, and not a hand out.
