Housing Crisis Hotline

Do you have a housing issue but don’t know where to go for help? Our telephone counselors will direct you to the agency that can help with your situation.

Legal Clinic

On the second and fourth Wednesdays of each month, HCC hosts a free legal clinic where you can learn more about Texas housing laws and meet with an attorney to discuss your specific concerns. More than 9,000 people from all over the DFW metroplex and from all walks of life seek HCC’s help each year, in areas ranging from lockouts and evictions to disputes regarding rent, repairs and public housing issues.  Our legal program has been cited by the State Bar of Texas for outstanding service.

  • Please arrive at the Housing Crisis Center, 4210 Junius, at 5:00 PM to sign in.
  • The clinic operates on a first come/first served basis.
  • The clinic fills up quickly and seating is limited.
  • Early sign-ins (before 5:00 PM) are not allowed.

Please note that our volunteer attorneys offer advice only. They are not agreeing to legal representation.

If you’re an attorney please consider volunteering with our legal clinic even if you do not practice in the area of tenant/landlord disputes, or real estate law. Contact us at 214.828.4244.

Permanent Housing Services
Permanent supportive housing with intensive case management for chronically homeless individuals, primarily veterans.  This program is only for individuals and does not serve families.

All Citizens Empowered
ACE is a permanent supportive housing program for families and individuals.  Heads-of-households must have a disabling mental condition such as schizophrenia and a substance addiction.  Individuals must be chronically homeless.  Half of the clients in this program are veterans.

Home Again

Newly homeless individuals and families can be in the Home Again program for up to 18 months if continuous progress is being made toward their goals. During that time they receive rent and utilities subsidies, as well as the intensive case management services they need to find stable employment and develop the skills necessary to remain self-sufficient. This program serves primarily families.
