Founded in 1978, Housing Crisis Center (HCC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization working to prevent homelessness and to stabilize those at risk of becoming homeless. The two aspects of what we do are: Homeless Assistance and Homelessness Prevention Services.

Homeless Assistance
Utilizing "scattered-site" apartment homes, we provide safety and shelter to Veterans, single-parent families, dual-parent families and other individuals, that have been referred to us through a Coordinated Assess System of the Continuum of Care. We have Rapid Rehousing and Permanent Supportive Housing programs.

In addition to housing, we provide coaching sessions and other vital support services to help participants address the issues that contributed to them becoming homeless, and empower them to solve their own housing problems in the future.

Homelessness Prevention Services
Three distinct services are a part of our prevention efforts. Qualified participants may apply to receive rent/mortgage and or utility assistance to help prevent being evicted from their housing

HCC also hosts a free legal clinic where eligible participants can learn more about their rights, and Texas landlord tenant housing laws. This is an advice only opportunity to meet with an attorney to discuss specific tenant related concerns. Our legal program has been cited by the State Bar of Texas for outstanding service.

Our Needs

Since there are many levels of involvement, and we want you to have an experience worth your time, carefully consider what interests you and your comfort level in working with our participants. Respect for the privacy and safety of our participants is vital, so opportunities may not be exactly what you might think. Please view the ways to "get involved" at our website: www.hccdallas.org. We look forward to you joining our volunteer team to fight homelessness.


The mission of the Housing Crisis Center is to prevent homelessness, respond to the immediate needs of those facing crisis, and sustain their stability in safe, affordable, and permanent housing while empowering them to solve their housing problems in the future.
