Tarrant County short term transitional housing and shelter.

When facing a housing crisis, programs are available in Tarrant County Texas. They range from short term, emergency shelters to transitional housing and help in locating a new home to live in. Non-profits and case managers from the community are focused on assisting families facing eviction, children, and the homeless as well.

Non-profits will also partner with the state of Texas and federal government agencies such as HUD. They will use all available resources, both inside and outside of Tarrant County, to help the less fortunate. While homeless prevention is always preferred, in some cases residents just can't afford their home and they need to find a place that better fits their budget. So case managers will work with clients on housing location as well.
