Two years ago, I was sent to a nursing home and I spent more than a year there. I was depressed. I felt like I was distanced from society. Thanks to the agency, I am able to live in my apartment. The agency has really made a difference in my life. I feel like I have almost erased my depression.

You Can Make a Difference

Make a Difference by Donating

For more than 40 years, UHC has brought vital healthcare services to people at home, at dramatically lower costs than nursing home and hospital care. But still there are many people in need that we cannot reach without the financial generosity of our South Florida community. Today, as one of the largest home health and community care services organizations in Florida, we encourage donations to our charitable giving programs in order to reach more people in need of services, but without the means to pay.

Please help us help our home-bound clients in need, and those on our waiting list that we cannot yet reach, by making a financial contribution to one or several of the following programs. Any amount will make a difference in a homebound person's life.

Select a program below to learn more and make a donation.

Dare to Dream

  • This program helps us meet basic unmet needs and wants for clients and those on the waiting list – things that are not covered by Medicare, Medicaid or private insurance. Meeting these needs can make life a little easier and mean the difference between existing and thriving.

    The need may be as simple as a piece of basic furniture or an appliance, or it could include special equipment to allow a client to remain at home rather than going to a nursing home.

    If you would like to donate to Dare to Dream, please call our Customer Care Center at 305-716-0710 to arrange delivery and ensure that your donation can be of use to our client.

Holiday Giving (baskets and amenities)

  • Holidays can be among the best days of our lives – or the loneliest. Help us brighten the holidays for the homebound by contributing to our baskets program, which provides food and amenities to our neediest clients.

Emergency Alert Devices

  • Most of our clients - and those on our waiting list - would benefit significantly from an emergency alert device. However, funding does not allow us to provide them to everyone.

    Your contribution will make it possible for more frail, elderly and disabled adults to get emergency assistance with the touch of a button.

Waiting List Assist

  • Due to limited funds and the need to prioritize services to the most frail, many elderly and disabled must wait for assistance. There are hundreds of people on our waiting list, and the average wait time is six months! Your contribution will help us provide interim services to someone on the waiting list. This will ensure that they can live at home or comfortably in a community setting

Annual Dinner & Claude Pepper Awards

  • Each year, United HomeCare® hosts an annual dinner at which distinguished members and corporations in our community are bestowed the Claude Pepper Awards. A major fundraising event, now in its 24th year, the event has raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to help United HomeCare fulfill the unmet needs of the frail, elderly and disabled in Miami-Dade County. It has also empowered us to develop new innovations in caring to help clients remain in the comfort of their home settings and enjoy greater independence.

    Through his lifetime of public service as a U.S. Senator from Florida and in other capacities, Senator Pepper championed numerous humanitarian causes, many related to the needs of elderly persons. The Claude Pepper Memorial Awards Dinner honors individuals and corporations that, like the Honorable Claude Pepper, have made a significant contribution to meeting the needs of the elderly and/or the disabled in Miami-Dade County. The event has become known as a signature gathering of some of South Florida's most dedicated, inspirational individuals and organizations.
