Since 1934, the purpose of the Visiting Nurse Association of Texas (VNA) has been to provide the highest quality care in the home across North Texas, especially for those with no place to turn and no means to pay.
VNA was chartered as a nonprofit organization to address the desperate need for home health care in the midst of the Depression.
Since that time, VNA has added additional services including Meals on Wheels, Hospice Care, and Palliative Care to ensure the homebound, elderly and disabled in our community are cared for expertly and with compassion.
The Meals on Wheels Program in Dallas was organized in 1957 as a pilot project by the Women’s Council of Dallas County. It was one of the first Meals on Wheels programs in the United States. In 1973, VNA agreed to take over the service, viewing the Meals on Wheels program as a logical extension and advancement of the agency’s mission.
