Join United Way in Ending Homelessness
United Way of Tarrant County allocates millions each year to help people who are homeless trade life on the streets or in a temporary shelter for an apartment or other place to call home.
Using money that mostly comes from the City of Fort Worth General Revenue Fund, we partner with the City to award grants annually for permanent housing and support services as part of the City’s Directions Home plan to eliminate chronic homelessness. The 10-year plan aligns the work of numerous independent, homeless-serving agencies for maximum impact.
In addition, those who designate to United Way’s “Homelessness” special focus through the United Way campaign help people not only in Fort Worth, but in Arlington and Northeast Tarrant County as well. Designations to “Homelessness” are used for assistance such as rent deposits, bus fare, household furnishings and medical items. We also fund the Presbyterian Night Shelter, which is a United Way partner agency.
If you know someone who needs assistance, dial 2-1-1 from your landline or mobile phone for help.
