Catholic Charities Dallas relies on the Coordinated Access System managed by Housing Forward to ensure that the most vulnerable and disadvantaged are screened and selected. Our programs do not accept outside referrals, calls for residency, or walk-ins.
St. Jude Centers only accept referrals directly from social service agencies or Housing Forward. Client must be working with a social service agency, documented as homeless in the Housing Forward housing priority list, and pass a background screening before being accepted as a resident at either St. Jude Center. Also, the referring agency must provide case management and secure the subsidy (through grants or vouchers) for each resident referred to St. Judes.
