The Reason Why We Serve
Homelessness is a systemic crisis that deeply impacts our community. In Dallas County alone, there are an estimated 5,000+ people sleeping on the streets, in cars, housing programs, motels, and other unsuitable places or in shelters every night.
Many of these vulnerable people are families with children, veterans, seniors or those afflicted by physically or mentally disabling conditions – in fact, families are one of the fastest growing segments of the homeless population, causing devastating effects on the development of young children. This crisis is devastating to the people who endure it and affects the quality of life of everyone in our city. It requires a permanent, integrated solution designed by the people who have first-hand knowledge of the issue.
Our Mission, Our Promise
In order to assist persons to become self-reliant Under 1 Roof provides permanent supportive housing and other services to homeless and low-income individuals as well as families of our community. Our vision is a community where everyone has safe affordable housing and the tools to become self-reliant. To bring that vision into reality, we provide permanent supportive housing and other services to the homeless population in Dallas & Collin Counties.
Under 1 Roof is a 501(c)3 Nonprofit organization. Services to prevent evictions and homelessness were first provided by volunteers who established Under 1 Roof (U1R) in 2011.
