We Help Children & Families Succeed

A family should be a safe zone, a place one goes to find support in times of crisis. But many Denton County families are unable to satisfy basic needs, let alone weather emergencies. With supportive services, individual and group coaching, and connections to resources around the community, United Way of Denton County helps families develop resiliency and resources to improve their lives.
