Mission United, a military and veterans outreach and services initiative of United Way of Tarrant County, helps both veterans, active duty military members and their families in North Texas find community resources and gain access to a variety of services including primary, specialty and mental health care; job training and employment; housing assistance; and education to develop skills for transitioning to civilian life.

MISSION UNITED IS POWERED BY:

                      

 

 

The initiative includes four programs:

 

Veterans Fund – United Way launched its Veterans Fund in 2013 with a generous corporate contribution by Lockheed Martin Aeronautics and an additional gift from Bell. The funding is dedicated to supporting military service members who are returning to civilian life in the Tarrant County area, by providing counseling, career and financial coaching, addiction treatment and other high-priority needs.

 

 

 

Veteran Options Navigator Program – With support from the Texas Veterans Commission Fund for Veterans Assistance, Mission United provides a dedicated Veterans Specialist at the Area Agency on Aging/Aging and Disability Resource Center who provides case management, home visit support and outreach to qualifying veterans, their families and spouses. The Veterans Specialist also helps veterans with disabilities apply for Veterans Administration financial assistance to help pay for services needed to live at home.

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 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.
