2022 Champions For Seniors

In the words of the late Senator Claude Pepper, a beloved public servant who tirelessly championed causes on behalf of the elderly, “They deserve much, and they need much.” To have quality of life in one’s later years often requires a helping hand, frequently more than family members can provide physically or financially.

United Home Care® has served clients in MiamiDade County since 1973 with the sole mission of providing that helping hand. While most of our clients qualify for services under aging and healthcare programs, we frequently encounter service needs not covered by those programs. It is here that community philanthropy plays a vital role. Annually we recognize individuals and corporations who have demonstrated leadership and compassion for the elderly and disabled inspiring others through their actions. Please join us in congratulating the 2022 Claude Pepper Award Honorees!
