MILITARY & FAMILIES

Military Assistance

United Way’s Area Agency on Aging has a staff person assigned to work with military veterans with disabilities who are at risk of having to move to a nursing home. Such veterans are eligible to apply for Veterans Administration financial assistance to pay for services needed to live at home.

United Way’s 2-1-1 telephone information and referral service helps active duty and military veterans and their families by assessing the needs of people who inquire about veteran services and providing information about local programs.

For more information about these free services, dial 2-1-1.

2015 VETERANS RESOURCE GUIDE

In North Texas, there is a strong and inter-connected community supporting the men and women who serve and have served our country. We believe veterans deserve our gratitude and support for their dedication and service. That’s why the United Way of Tarrant County and the Veterans Coalition of Tarrant County (VETCO) have partnered to produce the 2015 Veterans Resource Guide.

The Guide uses information from United Way’s 2-1-1 information and referral service and Texas Health & Human Services Commission. The project would not be possible without sponsorships by Lockheed Martin & Bell Helicopter.

The purpose of this guide is to provide information on nonprofit and governmental resources to retired or serving veterans and/or military personnel in Erath, Hood, Johnson, Palo Pinto, Parker, Somervell, Tarrant and/or Wise counties.  It is our intent that this information will empower and support the men and women who serve and have served our country.
