If you are homeless—living in a shelter, on the streets, in a vehicle, or in a place unfit for human occupation—or potentially facing homelessness, call our Crisis Hotline 214.828.4244. Our counselors will direct you to an agency that can help. Please note that to qualify for one of our programs you must be referred to us by the VA or a caseworker at a shelter. We will not be able to help you on a walk-in basis. If you are having legal problems with your landlord, please attend one of free legal clinics.
