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.
School is Cool
We make every effort to provide a school uniform, shoes and a back pack filled with the appropriate school supplies for school age children in our program. Each year we have approximately 300 current and former clients participate in a two-hour party of food, games and catching up before handing out the bag of goodies.
Become a Holiday Hero by “adopting” a child, adult, or senior citizen! Purchase a few gifts for our clients and help them celebrate the holiday spirit of Hanukah, Christmas or Kwanzaa.
With such a small staff, we rely on volunteers to help us accomplish our work. There are at least 6 workdays at the shelter properties and another 4 here at our offices. If you have 4 or what may feel like 40 hours to give, call us. It is a win-win feeling for all involved!
The Gay & Lesbian Fund for Dallas (GLFD) held one of the greenest events this side of St Patrick's Day. The Green Tie for Green Haus was on March 24, 2018, at 7 for Parties. GLFD selected Shared Housing Center, specifically their Green Haus capital project, as the beneficiary of its biennial event.
