The Stewpot currently has two housing programs for people experiencing homelessness: Rapid Rehousing (through the Dallas Real Time Rapid Rehousing Initiative) and Permanent Supportive Housing.
rapid rehousing + Permanent supportive housing programs
The Stewpot's Housing Programs follow the Housing First approach and pair subsidized housing assistance with ongoing case management with access to supportive services. Our programs use a housing choice model which means each resident is actively involved in identifying the apartment and community in which they live.
Enrollment in Stewpot Housing Programs is by referral only. All participants for housing are referred through the Coordinated Access System (CAS). CAS is a community-wide process developed to ensure all people experiencing a housing crisis have fair and equal access to housing resources in the community. No direct referrals can be accepted into Stewpot Housing Programs.
If you'd like more information, please fill out the form below.
How do I get on the CAS list to get housed?
If you are staying at a shelter, there are trained case managers to assist you with this process (a list of local shelters can be found here). If you are unsheltered or need assistance getting on this list, please speak with a City Square, Metro Relief, or other outreach team member.
What is Rapid Rehousing?
Rapid Rehousing is designed to help individuals and families who have recently lost their housing quickly exit homelessness, return to housing in the community, and prevent them from becoming homeless again.
What is Permanent Supportive Housing?
Permanent Supportive Housing is designed for chronically homeless individuals and families who require longer term assistance to achieve stability and self-sufficiency.
Please note: Stewpot services listed as benefiting people experiencing homelessness are for individuals or families who have been sleeping in a place not meant for human habitation (e.g., living on the streets, in a car, in an abandoned building, etc.) and/or in an emergency shelter/Safe Haven.
