Expanding access to opportunity

All Texans deserve the opportunity to engage in meaningful work and to acquire assets to support their families and thrive economically.

In 2012, we launched our focus on improving the economic security and mobility of low-income people and families who live and work in North Texas. For 10 years, we have created awareness and opportunities for families and individuals to increase their income and acquire assets to support their families and advance economically.

Take a look at how it all came together.
