A Collaborative Approach
Collaboration is a key component of our mission. At United Against Poverty of St. Lucie County, we advocate a “more is more” approach. We believe that the more agencies we can partner with and the more services and resources we can make available on-site, the more we can help those who are hidden, hungry and hurting in this community.
Through these partnerships, we can maximize our impact and better reach and serve those in need in this community. If you are interested in becoming a Provider Partner, please contact Executive Director Stefanie Myers at: Stefanie@unitedagainstpoverty.org
