Tarrant county has grown by 25% since 2000. All of this growth has also increased challenges in our community across all demographics and backgrounds. At United Way of Tarrant County, we’re adding efforts to help address the social challenges our community faces – violence (both neighborhood and domestic); poverty; housing; aging older adults,– are incredibly complex and interrelated. These are not single, isolated issues and there are no single, easy solutions. Social issues affect EVERYONE in the community.
