Wednesday, November 8, 2023

ARLINGTON, Texas (Nov. 9, 2023) — United Way of Tarrant County (UWTC) is proud to announce that its Mission United military outreach and services initiative has granted a total of $325,000 to eight nonprofits within the Tarrant County area. These organizations provide vital support to military service members as they navigate the challenging transition back to civilian life.

The grants awarded by UWTC’s Mission United Veterans Fund will bolster essential services such as counseling, career and financial coaching, substance abuse treatment and other high-priority needs. These programs support the work UWTC does in its four focus areas: community response, community health, financial empowerment, and education and learning.

“We understand the challenges that can be present as veterans transition into civilian life, no matter how long they served. That’s why we’re focused on ensuring these veterans and their family members have access to the resources they need to navigate those transitions,” said Regina R. Williams, UWTC executive vice president and chief impact officer of Community Investment. “These organizations are going above and beyond to meet the needs of this population, and we’re proud to invest in the incredible work they’re doing.” 

United Way launched its Veterans Fund in 2013 with founding corporate contributions from Lockheed Martin and Bell. This year’s funding recipients include:
