Who We Are

For our neighbors experiencing homelessness, immediate shelter is just the first step. Presbyterian Night Shelter of Tarrant county strives to break chronic cycles of homelessness through shelter, affordable housing, and sustainable employment.

Since 1984, we have served as a safe place for guests to access critical resources and services that will ignite their journey from homeless to home, as well as meet basic needs for food, shelter, and a community that cares. Driven by our mission, each program and initiative of the Shelter works together to empower our guests to exit homelessness, equipped with new skills and confidence to maintain their housing stability.

More than the sum of our parts.


The Presbyterian Night Shelter was started in 1984 by a group of Presbyterian churches as an sit-up shelter for men, women and children struggling with homelessness in Tarrant County. Today, we retain many of the elements that gave us our name, providing (but not requiring) spiritual guidance for those who seek it. And while our overnight emergency shelter services are still available to anyone who needs them, we’re equally focused on helping our guests find employment and their own permanent housing.
