United Way of Denton County is dedicated to improving lives in Denton County
To accomplish this mission, we focus our efforts on three distinct areas: Education, Income, and Health. We collaborate with twenty partner agencies to effect positive change in our community. Beyond traditional collaborations with other non-profits, United Way of Denton County partners with all levels of government and runs programs of our own designed to positively impact our community. Ongoing Community Assets & Needs Assessment efforts help to align community investments towards critical areas of need throughout Denton County.
Community Assets & Needs Assessment
In order to target our limited resources at our community's most pressing needs, United Way of Denton County regularly performs or updates our Community Assets & Needs Assessment.
Learning well is a lifelong goal that begins when our children look to us to give them the quality education they need to fulfill their dreams.
Earning well and using those earnings wisely leads to a stable, healthy, productive life as well as a leg up for our children.
Living well with a healthy diet, preventative care, and affordable, timely medical attention allows us to dedicate our efforts to improving our communty.
Information and Referral
For those in need, the appropriate information and a helpful referral are only a phone-call away. United Way of Denton County, in partnership with many local non-profits, maintains the Denton County Community Services Directory, a local helpline, and Denton County's 2-1-1 database. This regularly updated information ensures that your neighbors, friends, and family have somewhere to turn to when life gets tough.
A non-profit organization is as healthy as its Board of Directors. To help Denton County non-profit organizations recruit and retain quality volunteer board members, United Way of Denton County offers Project Blueprint, an in-depth course to train community members in how to be an effective board member for our local non-profits.
Emergency and Disaster Preparedness
In times of crisis, United Way of Denton County coordinate community recovery efforts with local government and non-profit organizations.
