Unite Ellis is an organization under Unite DFW that will serve as the backbone group to collaborative efforts throughout Ellis County. Unite Ellis is here to coordinate consistent communication and collaboration on the county, city and neighborhood levels, across all sectors and various issues or topics. After several years of working with the John Maxwell leadership team to implement a leadership round table curriculum, hosting several leadership conferences, facilitating two city projects and spurring on collaboration in the county to further leaders and transform our communities, the leadership cabinet for Ellis County conducted research throughout the county to determine needs and potential next steps for a county-wide collaboration. This research and conversations led to partnering with Unite DFW and launching Unite Ellis in order to inform, connect and equip those in our county to care for the people of our community. For the first year, the following arenas will be focused on for Unite Ellis: 

History & Where We’re Going

Relational Infrastructure
Implementing County-Wide Relational Infrastructure

  • Identifying Champions at the county and city levels, at content/issue levels (poverty, youth, foster care, etc.) and at the neighborhood level with at least one Champion per elementary school zone (33 zones total in the county).

  • Champions help navigate needs, keep the communities connected, serve as point people for areas they are over.

  • Unite Ellis supports Champions with communication, collaboration, and training.
