How we help Veterans
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 and their families 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.
United Way of Denton County is also proud to present Project Camo, a Veterans and community education program intended to better prepare Veterans for redeployment into a civilian world and prepare our community to better help Veterans in crisis.
Finally, through generous donations facilitated by United Way of Denton County, Denton County service providers who help Veterans can coordinate their activities through the Denton County Veterans Center.
Our Veteran-related programs are made possible by Texas Health & Human Services grant funding, coordination by the Denton County Behavioral Health Leadership Team, backbone support from United Way of Denton County, and support from local businesses and individuals.
