The answer to ending homelessness is a home. The City of Dallas is actively looking for landlords, property owners / managers, and organizations who want to join us in the fight to end homelessness. Providing temporary shelter during inclement weather or affordable housing to meet the demand for our Rapid Rehousing Initiative is an excellent way to uplift the cause.

Providing Emergency Shelter for Inclement Weather

While we work year-round to meet housing needs, during extreme weather conditions, special provisions are made for the unsheltered community. In the summer months, cooling stations are opened throughout the City. During the winter, emergency shelters are opened to provide respite from life-threatening cold.

During winter months, specifically, we are seeking organizations that are willing to open their doors and shelter the most vulnerable of our community. To see if your organization meets the emergency shelter requirements, explore the links below and sign up today.

Property Owners and Landlords

The City of Dallas is actively searching for landlords and property managers who want to join us in our cause to end homelessness. If you are a property owner or manager and would like to participate in our rental assistance / emergency voucher programs, click here.

Benefits of Becoming a Landlord

  • Giving Back – Being a part of this program opens the door to opportunities to participate in community outreach and services, becoming a part of the solution to house the homeless.
  • Automatic, Guaranteed Payments – Rent payments are paid from various housing programs directly to the landlord eliminating the risk of late or missed payments from tenants and guaranteeing tenant occupancy.
  • Case Management Support – Each tenant housed under this program has a case manager who will conduct home visits and who works with the tenant, making the transition to housing smooth and seamless. These case managers may also answer questions and act as a liaison to the landlord, should the need arise.
