Below are several community resources that may be beneficial to you and your family for needs that fall outside of the responsibility of the HIV Administrative Agency:
We help people by giving them the tools to help themselves. We partner with organizations and agencies through evidence-based programs that make a measurable impact into OUR Tarrant County community. The social challenges our community faces – violence, both neighborhood and domestic; poverty; low graduation rates; and ever-increasing numbers of older adults and their caregivers – are incredibly complex and interrelated. These are not single, isolated issues. And there are no single, easy solutions. United Way of Tarrant County focuses on improving the lives of the people that live in our community through Education, Income and Health, which are the root causes to most of the problems in the community.
So, we looked deeper, to the three underlying areas that affect everything else: education, income and health. And we partnered with local organizations to create programs that could help people in Tarrant County LEARN WELL, EARN WELL and LIVE WELL – independently.
We have a 10-year vision to improve lives through Education, Income and Health. We call them our BOLD GOALS.
