That was the pledge made by Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid, Prime Minister and Ruler of Dubai, on Tuesday during a Cabinet meeting.
During the meeting, Sheikh Mohammed looked back on the UAE government's achievements for its people last year, saying the Cabinet would continue to push for more benefits and opportunities for Emiratis this year.
"Today, I chaired a UAE Cabinet meeting, in which we reviewed last year's outcomes and plan for 2019," he said on Twitter.
"We granted 7,000 homes for citizens in 2018 and we are working with local governments to ensure no Emirati is left without a home," he said.
Sheikh Mohammed said Dh10 billion was granted in social assistance to "vulnerable groups" last year. Speaking to those groups, he said "the government is with them in 2019 and we will not leave anyone behind, nor will they want for anything".
He said policies pertaining to families, women and children were launched and promised that, in 2019, Emiratis would remain the government's "first, second and third priority".
The moves comes on the heels on Sheikh Mohammed announcing details of a 50-year charter, aimed at improving the lives of citizens and residents alike for the half century to come.
The charter is divided up into nine principles, outlining a grand vision to bolster everything from medical services to international trade.
The charter's progress will be personally overseen by Sheikh Mohammed and the Crown Prince, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed.
