Education can chart a child’s future, opening doors and setting students up for a lifetime of success. Access to education is also closely linked with our other focus areas—income and health—because educational achievement leads to higher incomes, which in turn improves access to health. That’s why at United Way of Metropolitan Dallas we lead and invest in programs that improve access to education so all North Texas students are prepared for the careers of tomorrow.
