We Help Veterans

Click here to refer a Veteran to the Veteran Community Navigator program!

Though we may not have a military installation in our community, over 46,000 Veterans call Denton County home. Serving in conflicts as distant as World War II and as recent as Iraq and Afghanistan, these Veterans encounter their own unique hardships after transitioning back to the civilian world.

Thanks to funding from the Texas Health and Human Services Commission, United Way of Denton County is proud to serve as the backbone for the Denton County Behavioral Health Leadership Team's Veteran Community Navigator program. Through this program, we link Veterans and their family members with resources that meet physical and mental health needs. The goals of Veterans and their families will drive the services provided by the Veteran Community Navigator program.

Our Veteran Community Navigator program operates out of the Denton County Veterans Center at 400 S. Carroll Blvd., Suite 2000, Denton, TX 76201

How this works
  • A community partner interacts with a Veteran, their spouse or their dependent
  • The community partner refers the Veteran, spouse or dependent via our online referral form
  • Veteran Case Manager contacts the person via phone within two (2) business days
  • Veteran, spouse or dependent meets with Veteran Case Manager for assessment, goal development and additional helpful referrals
What you can expect as a Veteran or a spouse or dependent of a Veteran:
  • Veteran and family-centered care
  • Linkage to appropriate community resources
  • Working efficiently with you to ensure success
What community partners can expect after referring someone to the Veteran Community Navigator program:
  • Timely service for Veterans and family members
  • Reliable communication
  • Confidentiality

The Veteran Community Navigator program is a Texas Health & Human Services grant-funded initiative in partnership with the Denton County Behavioral Health Leadership Team and United Way of Denton County.
