Are you currently experiencing homelessness?

If you are currently experiencing homelessness you can contact/visit one of the organizations below, or you can complete the Referral Form on the United Way of Denton County’s website and a staff member will contact you to complete a 20-30 minute assessment called Coordinated Entry located here: https://www.unitedwaydenton.org/homelessness-resources. Coordinated Entry helps quickly connect people to available resources and gathers information about the housing needs of people that are not served.
