Get Involved

Join in the effort to make homelessness RARE, BRIEF and NON-RECURRING.

Composed of local non-profit agencies, housing providers, municipalities, churches, government agencies, and county residents, DCHC works collaboratively with the Denton County Homeless Leadership Team and our CoC lead, the Balance of State operated by the Texas Homeless Network in assisting persons who are homeless and potentially homeless to achieve self-sufficiency and gain affordable housing.

It’s simple to get involved.

  • Join. To join the coalition, complete the DCHC Membership Application and return it.
  • Elect Leadership. The DCHC Steering Committee is the leadership body elected by the coalition’s general body. The steering committee appoints members to leadership positions and may organize subcommittees to work on specific goals and projects.
  • Attend meetings. DCHC Meetings are usually held on the first Wednesday in even-numbered months alternating between Denton and Lewisville.
  • Listen, Learn and Act. Help plan and coordinate the housing and services for families and individuals experiencing or at risk of homelessness.
