Mission Statement

Collaboration is required to compensate for market failure and ensure all households have an opportunity to meet their basic needs. CARe stimulates collaborations between people, places and organizations to support more comprehensive solutions for disadvantaged, underserved populations in Dallas County, and the organizations that serve them.

CARe leverages collaboration to facilitate:

  • Documentation of unmet needs in underserved populations
  • Research agendas aligned with the needs of underserved populations and the organizations that serve them
  • Communication of results to help the public and policy makers understand the problems and needs of the underserved
