United Way of Metropolitan Dallas tackles complex social problems by surrounding North Texans with local programming in the areas of Education, Income, and Health – the essential component of a thriving community. We understand that these three areas are connected and correlated with community success. We also believe that our lives are inextricably linked, when one of us succeeds, we all succeed. We are solution seekers and agents of change. Our goal is to have thriving families who are healthy, who have students who can successfully enter college or a career after high school, and who no longer live in poverty.
