By 1977, with increased local community support and a solid volunteer base, the agency sought stable funding and a fulltime staff by joining forces with the existing Carrollton Community Chest and securing affiliation with the United Way on March 21, 1977. The agency resulting from this merger was renamed the Northwest Dallas County Service Center and chartered to provide services including information and referral services, professional counseling and emergency assistance.
