Shared Housing Center
Shared Housing Center was created in 1984 to provide and facilitate affordable housing options. Our mission has been to offer housing options and supportive services that foster independence, empowerment, and self-worth and to serve a multicultural, intergenerational population. Since our inception, we have offered housing and services to critically at-risk populations — older adults, single parents with young children, and persons with special needs — seeking to elevate themselves from homeless and near homeless situations to lifestyles of relative self-sufficiency.
Through collaboration of the Texas Department on Aging, Access Center for the Elderly, the Dallas Area Agency on Aging and Catholic Charities of Dallas, Shared Housing Center was founded in 1984 as a shared program of the Brady Center and Center for Housing Resources. In 1987, Shared Housing Center was incorporated as a separate 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization and provided offices in the Wilson Historic District of the Meadows Foundation.
Shared Housing Center currently operates two distinct housing services along with a variety of supportive services, children’s programs and special projects which focus on self-sufficiency and family stability. Clients applying for our programs must pass a criminal background check and drug test.
