Opera Host Organization - Dallas, TX

Host Organization:
The Housing Authority of the City of Dallas, TX (DHA) is an agency that builds sustainable communities, offers updated properties that residents are proud to call home, and provides a stepping stone to self-sufficiency.

DHA fosters community partnerships. The Lakewest Multipurpose Center is a perfect example of how several agencies can work together under one roof to serve the community. At the center, DHA has partnered with the YMCA, Head Start, the Dallas Police Department, and Parkland hospital. Clients can access recreation programs, day care, community safety, health care information, and other services in one convenient location. DHA residents can choose rental housing in the private marketplace throughout the city with the use of vouchers or participate in innovative programs that assist clients with homeownership.

DHA continues to meet its clients' needs in the most fair, effective and efficient ways possible. With DHA assistance, residents will continue becoming self sufficient, contributing citizens.
