$100,000 Goal


Ascend Dallas works with an average of 1,800 clients a year, 93 percent of whom are women of color and 79 percent of whom earn less than $38,000 a year.


Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP). Ascend Dallas' Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a national, evidence-based, community health program wherein registered nurses provide in-home medical, nutritional, and social-emotional support to first-time moms and their children from pregnancy through the child’s second birthday - ensuring both mom and baby get the resources they need.

Through the Economic Advancement (EA) program, clients are able to create a path to financial stability, which has demonstrable success in reducing debt, increasing savings, improving credit and growing income through career advancement. Ascend Dallas helps clients grow their fiscal capacity to ensure lifelong financial success. EA services are a blend of cohort learning and 1:1 coaching focused on personal finance, careers and financial wellness. Trained coaches help provide targeted education for each client to set financial goals and serve as accountability partners

Our mission is to empower women, fight poverty and impact generations.

We know when you invest in a woman, she lifts up herself, her family and her community. Beginning as the YWCA in 1908, Ascend Dallas is constantly evolving to meet women's changing needs.

Ascend Dallas broadens a woman's sense of what's possible, targeting financial stability and independence to empower women to take control of their life. Ascend Dallas provides free and vital services to women in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex, including some of the most vulnerable populations - communities of color, women with limited English proficiency, single-income households, women at risk of intimate partner violence and financial insecurity.

Ascend Dallas' key differentiation is in one-on-one, personalized support we offer each of our members. Our incredible team of coaches, mentors, and nurse home visitors walk alongside nearly 2,000 members to chart an actionable path toward financial and personal resiliency, serving as an accountability partner along the way.

The resources that Ascend Dallas provides are designed to meet a woman where she is. Regardless of the circumstances that bring a woman to Ascend Dallas, she gains confidence with a brighter future for herself and her family. And, Ascend Dallas is not a one-and-done service - even after Ascend Dallas members have gained control of their finances, they are encouraged to take advantage of additional classes and continuing education resources Ascend Dallas can provide.
