Mission Arlington® honored as “best charity” in the DFW Area

This is a video produced this year by the good folks at the “Official BEST of” team from Hollywood, California. They provide TV and web viewers with the official best places to visit in a growing number of states across America.  After an organization is nominated, the research team from the organization consults with local Convention and Visitors Bureaus, Chambers of Commerce and other experts in the field to determine which nominations will be named the “best of.” Mission Arlington® was nominated and selected to be the “Best Charity of DFW.” We are humbled and honored by this designation.

Diabetes Education – “La Sweet Vida” Testimonies

“La Sweet Vida” was created in partnership with the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) which facilitated the creation of a diabetes education and prevention center within the Medical Clinic of Mission Arlington®.

Through the creative prism of graphic design, the ministry of the Clinic was broadened (facilitating touch screens, videos, app design, interior design, and health information) to provide education and prevention assistance to families at risk. You can view below the video created and produced by UTA students. You can view more video testimonials here!


Mission Arlington® Classic Video – Produced in 1996 (when we were 10 years old).

This video, though produced in 1996, still communicates the heart of Mission Arlington® / Mission Metroplex®. Some of the ministries portrayed in this video (such as childcare, and a day shelter) no longer function in the same way. Other ministries are in operation now which weren’t when this video was created. And, of course, the results you hear within the video were accurate in 1996.
