Texas Health Resources announced that it will award $5.5 million in grants that will push beyond hospital walls and into the heart of North Texas communities, targeting seniors living in isolation — in some cases without access to healthy food — and youth in traumatic situations that leave them with persistent behavioral health issues.
The current grants to 12 agencies listed below represent the work of numerous nonprofit organizations, along with Texas Health Community Impact’s Leadership Councils, supported by about 20 Texas Health Resources staff members. The councils are made up of community leaders in five geographic regions of North Texas that at first included 401 ZIP codes.
