MedStar Clay Shoot
Each year, the MedStar Foundation chooses a local nonprofit making an impact to be the beneficiary of their annual fundraiser. This year, they've chosen the DRC! And they've decided to do a clay shoot on Tuesday, May 28, 2019.

National Low Income Housing Coalition releases 2019 Gap Report
The numbers are sobering. In DFW alone, there are only 36,474 available affordable units for 196,950 extremely low income households. Our region is #7 in the nation for the most severe shortage affordable available housing. We can do better. It's time to act.

Fleeing Abuse, Again - Stephanie's Story
What would you do if you'd already taken your children and fled your abuser once, only to be found and have to move again?

For Stephanie and her kids, moving again was simply out of their budget, although it was manda. Their church allowed them refuge in their youth house, but that was just a temporary fix. The church contacted the DRC, and our case manager Jessica sprang into action.

Because of your support, the DRC was able to partner with CPS and a local congregation to assist the family in moving to a new home complete with furniture and household items, have all utilities turned on, and offer rental assistance for the next six months.

Stephanie and her children still receive services through the DRC's Homeless Victims Advocacy Project for children and adults to help them heal. They are meeting all the requirements from CPS to have their case closed, and CPS continues to monitor their abuser.
Join us for lunch
Our Housing First Friday luncheon series got off to a great start in March! We would love to have you join us on Friday, April 5 for lunch and discussion of the topic " Community Impact of Homelessness: A look at the financial and social impacts of homelessness in Tarrant County."

Lunch is free, but registration is required.

Our Future is Bright!
The DRC staff is looking forward to moving into our new offices at 1212 E. Lancaster soon. The space is still being finished out, and we anticipate a move later this month.

Watch for your invitation to an open house reception later this spring!
