Homelessness Barriers Fund


The Denton County Homelessness Barriers Fund was created to help families overcome barriers to getting and staying housed. On any given day, there are at least 250 people experiencing literal homelessness in Denton County, and many more are one financial crisis away from losing their housing. A donation to the fund helps ensure our Denton County neighbors have a safe and stable place to call home.
