Proudly serving those who have Served.


Out of concern about highly stressed and vulnerable military families, United Way of San Antonio and Bexar County created Mission United, a military information and referral program, in November 2015. This program helps military and veteran families navigate the robust, but complex, array of community and military support programs.


Contact MISSION UNITED by calling 2-1-1, our 24/7/365 stigma-free and confidential phone service dedicated to connecting people with community, health, and disaster services. Our special Military Navigators can assist active duty, and fellow Veteran and military families in navigating the maze of health and human service programs available in the San Antonio area.

We will connect you to the best military or Veteran resources and benefit information based on branch of service, status of service including Veterans and active duty, and by category, such as behavioral health, education and employment, financial assistance and more.
