Affiliate Service Areas
An Affiliate’s “service area” is defined as the geographical region in which an Affiliate is operating. In Texas, service areas are primarily defined by county borders. They help us better track coverage of our organization’s programming across the state and enable us to more effectively communicate this information to our funders and the general public. They also helps NAMI Texas clearly identify underserved areas, information that is essential to our expansion efforts. Moreover, we want to avoid approving the formation of new NAMI Affiliates that would incidentally fall within an existing Affiliate’s service area.
