City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County
and United Way of Tarrant County
We have one of the top housing teams in the Directions Home initiative, a campaign led by the City of Fort Worth, Tarrant County and the United Way of Tarrant County to end homelessness as a way of life here.
In partnership with Directions Home, the DRC helps individuals and families find housing as quickly as possible, lowering the high cost of long shelter stays whenever we can.
Once people have a place to call home, DRC solutions connect them with the help they’ll need to succeed.
Texas Governor’s Office, Criminal Justice Division
We created the Victims Advocacy Project, one of the first in Texas created to help homeless victims of violent crime seek justice and safe shelter, with help from the governor’s office.
The Faith Community
We open doors with shelter alternatives like Room in the Inn. A ministry uniting the DRC and hundreds of volunteers at area churches, Room in the Inn opens hearts and houses of worship to provide overnight shelter in the hottest and coldest months of the year.
Volunteers treasure the time and stories they share with men or women who are homeless in this beloved shelter alternative, and people emerging from homelessness form community ties that can last a lifetime.
Healthy Community Collaborative
The DRC is part of the Healthy Community Collaborative, an alliance of seven agencies led by MHMR of Tarrant County. Together we’re expanding outreach, housing, and other help for individuals and families experiencing or escaping homelessness.
