The site, created in 2002, is publicly funded by North Central Texas Area Agency on Aging, Community Council of Greater Dallas/Dallas Area Agency on Aging, and Texas Health & Human Services to service the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex and its surrounding counties, which are largely rural and lacking access to resources, education, and services.
Our site content is lovingly curated, updated, and resources vetted to ensure the highest quality and value to caregivers. Only non-profit services and organizations are listed; we do not seek, nor do we accept, product listings, paid services, back-link requests, or advertising.
