Who We Help

We’re here to help.

The fight to end homelessness can’t be won with a "one-size-fits-all” solution. That’s why we provide services that address the diversity of our guest population.

Single Men and Women

  • Our shelter for homeless adults operates 24 hours a day, and 365 days a year.
  • Housing, meals and additional support services are available for single women and single men.
  • We are free to anyone in need, and we are the only shelter in our area without length-of-stay restrictions.

Women and Children

  • Our Women and Children’s Facility is the only area shelter that allows families with older teenage boys to remain with their mothers, keeping the families together.
  • We also provide a comprehensive children's program, which includes playgrounds, on-site counseling and after-school tutoring.
  • Our capital campaign is increasing our ability to meet growing demand for families, including a new facility to be opened in 2016, expanded support services and enhanced safety and security.

Veterans

  • We have one of the most successful transitional housing programs for veterans in the United States, preparing them for permanent, independent housing within 12 months.
  • We have developed semiprivate facilities for veterans, allowing them to prepare their own meals and have separate recreation, as well as access to showers, laundry services and a computer lab.
  • We work with Veterans Affairs to secure and retain employment for homeless veteran guests, move them into permanent housing and eliminate or minimize barriers to continued self-sufficiency.

Mentally Ill/Behaviorally Disabled

  • Our Behavioral Care Facility provides services for severely mentally ill homeless, who often suffer from substance abuse issues.
  • We work with mentally ill homeless to live in furnished, private rooms in a residential facility.
  • MHMR Tarrant County collaborates with us to provide health care services.
