Looking at how three different institutions have come together to work with a local community. The southern sector of this Texas city presents the greatest opportunity for growth. It’s made up of the largest inventory of land and workforce potential in this metropolitan city. However, the area has challenges. The area is home to 45% of the city’s families, but represents 15% of the tax base. Additionally, the southern sector is home to the majority of neighborhoods that exceed 41% poverty.
A collection of grassroots organizations made up of small nonprofits, churches, and neighborhood organizations seek to provide needed services. The goal of NPII is to position 10 small nonprofit organizations for greater capacity in serving their local community. Using a collaborative, inclusive approach, the United Way of Metropolitan Dallas, the University of North Texas at Dallas and the State Fair of Texas created this initiative to strengthen and support these organizations through education, resource networking, and investment. You will hear from one of the community organizations participating in NPII along with representatives from United Way of North Texas at Dallas and the University of North Texas at Dallas.
