                           Executive Summary
The Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance (MDHA) and Solutions to Homelessness



MDHA is the Dallas area’s public-private alliance and membership organization with the
mission to prevent and end homelessness. The Alliance engages nonprofit and public
service organizations, policy makers, people experiencing homelessness and the
general public to make continuous progress toward its mission. Our efforts to develop
housing and services have helped thousands of formerly homeless children and families
and individuals recover from homelessness over the last decade.

The Alliance has been central to the development of more than 2,000 units of
permanent supportive housing for homeless children and families and single adults with
disabling conditions and more than 1,800 units of transitional supportive housing in the
Dallas area. MDHA provided implementation planning and private sector fundraising for
The Bridge, Dallas’ homeless assistance center. MDHA opened The Bridge in May
2008 and operated the center until it became a separate entity in October 2011.

MDHA is the lead nonprofit agency designated by the U.S. Department of Housing and
Urban Development (HUD) to coordinate and plan local homeless services. The
Alliance provides stewardship and management of approximately $15 million in federal
funds annually through the HUD-MDHA Continuum of Care for Dallas and Collin
counties. The annual Point-In-Time Homeless Count is one of our responsibilities. The
data-based, objective role that MDHA plays in this initiative is largely funded by local
philanthropy and not taxpayer dollars.

The Alliance is committed to using data to drive continuous improvement of the Dallas
area’s efforts to overtake and end homelessness. The Point-In-Time Homeless Count &
Census is a building block for effectively leveraging federal funds, local government
resources and philanthropy.

Introduction and Methodology


The annual Point-In-Time Count and Census is a community initiative to gather and
analyze data on homelessness in Dallas County. The information is used by healthcare
providers, nonprofit organizations, faith-based groups and local, state and federal
governmental agencies.

Each year, the Alliance works with local service providers to get a head count at each
shelter, transitional housing site and permanent supporting housing development.
Dozens of volunteers also visit outdoor encampments where homeless people live. The
volunteers gather additional information from homeless people who agree to be
surveyed. The information provides a snapshot of homelessness in our community on a
given night. However, it does not represent everyone experiencing homelessness
because many cannot be located.

MDHA appreciates the valuable support of the City of Dallas in conducting the Count.
The City’s Department of Housing and Community Services, the Dallas Police
Department including the outreach and Crisis Intervention Team make the Annual
Count possible. Heartfelt thanks to the 255 volunteers who served in a variety of roles
on the night of the Count, to the staff members of the 46 participating agencies, and to
the 56 data entry volunteers who finished entering more than 3,200 surveys in record
time this year.

Special thanks this year to The Real Estate Council Foundation, TREC, for its volunteer
and financial support of the count.

2012 Data Highlights


The 2012 results and comparisons with previous counts help identify trends, successes
and challenges ahead. The report includes the following findings:

      The number of chronically homeless individuals, those homeless longer than one
       year with a disability, totaled 407 -- a significant decrease from 2011’s total of
       504.

      The number of chronic homeless individuals has decreased 66 percent since
       2004.

      The number of people sleeping outdoors or in abandoned buildings has dropped
       44 percent from 2005 to 2012.

      The number of people living in permanent supportive housing increased 578
       percent from 2005 to 2012.

      The total homeless population number declined 3 percent, to 3,447 in 2012
       compared to 3,540 in 2011.

      Of homeless people who answered surveys, 25 percent reported becoming
       homeless within the last year.

      The number of homeless families has increased. A total of 496 adults who
       responded to the surveys said they had children living with them on the night of
       the count. This figure has risen 8 percent from 2011 and 36 percent from 2010.

      The count identified eight chronically homeless families, those homeless longer
       than one year with a parent who has a disability, a new reporting statistic. HUD
       has expanded the definition of chronically homeless to include families. Families
       are more difficult to identify because they often stay in their cars or other places
       that are not visible.

      The number of homeless youth, which includes runaways, unaccompanied by a
       parent increased to 190. This 272 percent increase is likely due to a new effort to
       count this population, which often remains invisible.

Brief Analysis

The community has made substantial progress in reducing the number of chronically
homeless individuals through coordinated services and permanent supportive housing.
These efforts should remain strong while more attention is focused on families with
children and veterans.

   The Dallas community has made substantial progress in moving chronically
    homeless single adults into permanent supportive housing. Permanent supportive
    housing (PSH) includes a mental health professional to help residents succeed in
    housing. Success in housing means fewer homeless individuals on the streets and
    in emergency shelters, reduced jail and criminal justice costs and reduced
    psychiatric and other hospitalizations.

   The decrease in chronic homelessness since 2004 can be attributed to the
    increased number of permanent supportive housing units for chronically homeless
    individuals. Chronically homeless individuals have long histories of homelessness
    and disabilities.

   The Dallas area developed 298 additional units of permanent supportive housing
    during 2011 that helped reduce chronic homelessness. These homes were funded
    primarily through the Continuum of Care, a partnership of local homeless services
    providers that receive U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development
    funding, in collaboration with the Dallas Housing Authority and NorthStar, the local
    behavioral healthcare system.

   The Bridge, Dallas’ multi-service campus for people experiencing homelessness,
    helped 238 people transition to housing.

   MDHA has a plan to add 1,800 units of permanent supportive housing for
    individuals and families by 2015. Permanent supportive housing provides services,
    such as a mental health professional to help residents, remain successful in
    housing. MDHA is working with its Homeless Policy Alliance of elected officials to
    gain support for the plan from local governmental entities.

   Permanent supportive housing programs are needed for families experiencing
    homelessness that include a parent diagnosed with a disability.

   The most difficult to count and an almost invisible homeless population are the
    families with children and youth 17 years of age and younger living on their own.
    Our efforts to track the unmet needs of families who are homeless and to articulate
    clearer solutions need to be redoubled.

   The need for more short-term transitional housing is apparent for youth and young
    adults who do not qualify for permanent supportive housing. Many of them have the
    capacity to become gainfully employed and fully self-sufficient, once short-term
    problems are addressed and resolved.

Total Homeless Population

Each year the Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance conducts a Point-In-Time (PIT)
Homeless Count under the direction of the US Department of Housing and Urban
Development (HUD). It is an exhaustive community endeavor which draws on the
resources of local volunteers, assets of local government agencies and contributions of
private associations.

MDHA has historically utilized the opportunity of this effort to expand the scope and
detail of information drawn out of the survey. The survey instrument used in Dallas is
designed to comply with HUD’s limited data requirement, and at the same time garner
other useful information for our local planning and delivery system. One byproduct of
this dual utility is a complex assortment of data.

MDHA counted a total of 3,447 homeless individuals in Dallas County on Jan. 26, 2012.
In addition, MDHA counted 2,171 formerly homeless people living in permanent
supportive housing. MDHA’s full count, including individuals settled in permanent
supportive housing, now totals 5,618.

HUD’s reporting requirement is succinct and limited in scope, with a primary focus on
people who have not attained housing stability. HUD does not include those who are in
Permanent Supportive Housing as homeless. People who are counted as homeless
under HUD’s definition are those who are:
                                                on the street
                                                in abandoned buildings
                                                in emergency shelter
                                                in transitional housing

Chronic Homeless Population

In 2012, there were 415 chronically homeless individuals (407 single adults and 8
in families) in Dallas County. The total number of persons experiencing chronic
homelessness has decreased nineteen percent (19%) since the last count in 2011.

Compared to those counted in 2004, the number of chronically homeless individuals
has decreased 66%. The blue line in the chart below illustrates the progress we have
made in Dallas under our goal of eliminating chronic homelessness. The red line
illustrates the challenge we must meet in doing so.

Homeless Families

The data below offers a view of the familial status of the actual homeless population by
grouping; single adults, those with children and unaccompanied children. Again, PSH
residents are not included in this report. It portrays the rising number of families with
children who are presenting as homeless in Dallas, and further illustrates the success
we have had in reducing homelessness among single adults.

The chart above illustrates the prevalence of circumstances that lead to homelessness.
One notable trend has been the rise in numbers of persons presenting with behavioral
health conditions (mental illness and chronic substance abuse)

HUD’s interest is in the total incidence of these factors. Consequently, people
presenting with more than one factor are counted multiple times.

                                         Part II


The second part of the Point-in-Time count includes information from 2,958 surveys of
people experiencing homelessness conducted by MDHA volunteers during the Jan. 26,
2012 count. The surveys represent 4,068 individuals because some of the surveys
included families with children.

The surveys were answered on a voluntary basis and are not intended to provide a
statistically valid sample. However, they represent a majority of the homeless population
counted on Jan. 26 and provide useful information to identify demographic information,
trends and progress related to homelessness in Dallas County.

All of the information in Part II is based on people experiencing homelessness that took
the survey and does not represent the county’s homeless population as a whole.


Survey / Sample Size

In 2012, 2,958 surveys were completed, representing a 5.4% decrease when
compared with the number of surveys completed last year.

In 2012, 4,068 total people were represented on surveys, representing less than 1%
increase when compared with the number of people represented last year.


Adult Population

     3,050 Adults were represented on the surveys.
     Adults made up 78% of the total homeless population.
     7% reported having formerly been in foster care.

                                 Age of Homeless Adults

The 2012 results support that the homeless population is aging along with the
mainstream national population. The largest clusters by age are in the age groups of
"40-49" and "50-59." Percentage increases were found in the “22-29”, “50-59” and the
“60-69” age groups while those 70 and older decreased from 3% to 1%.

In 2012, 554 survey respondents reported being veterans. Of those, 55% were
determined to be chronically homeless individuals. As the community becomes
more aware of the needs of veterans, it is important to understand the Veterans
population in comparison to the total homeless adult population.

the second largest age group being 4 – 6 (22%). The Census shows that 51% of
children experiencing homelessness are six or younger.

    Youth Survey and Dallas County ISD Information Related to Homelessness

In an effort to provide a more inclusive picture of homelessness among children in
Dallas County, a separate Youth Survey was developed for use beginning with the 2011
Point-In-Time Count and Census. Additionally two school districts in Dallas County, the
Dallas ISD and Mesquite ISD, provided information from the homeless liaison data that
is reported to the U.S. Department of Education.

The U.S. Department of Education uses a broader definition for homelessness than that
utilized by HUD. Most notably, the Department of Education includes additional
provisions for persons who:
      share the housing of other persons due to loss of housing, economic hardship, or
        a similar reason;
      live in motels, hotels, trailer parks, or camping grounds due to the lack of
        alternative adequate accommodations. 1

The numbers below represent homeless children reported by participating Dallas
County School Districts.

Causes of Homelessness based on the Point-In-Time Count and Census Surveys


When asked to provide between one (1) and three (3) reasons why they were
homeless, respondents provided the following information. Not everyone who
completed a survey provided responses to this question. Percentages are based on the
number of surveys completed, not the number of respondents who answered the
question.

The main cause remains "Unemployed, Lost Job." In 2012, this category declined to
50% from 54% in 2011. The percentage decrease in unemployment reported is likely
due to fewer overall responses in this self-reported category.

The percentage of respondents who indicated that they were homeless due to Mental
Illness rose to 32% in 2012 from 30% in 2011 and is up from 27% in 2010.

The percentage of respondents who indicated they were homeless due to Substance
Abuse / Dependence increased another percentage point to 31% from the previous
year.

   across the city, the number of homeless individuals in the City of Dallas Central Police
   District has declined. PLEASE NOTE: As demonstrated in the chart below, boundaries
   for police districts were changed in 2008, and a South Central Division was added.

2012 shows a:
     44% decrease in those sleeping Outdoors or in Abandoned Buildings
     <1% decrease in those sleeping in Emergency Shelters
    194% increase in those sleeping in Transitional Housing (TH)
    578% increase in those sleeping in Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH)

However, It should be noted that 20% of the population reported are ex-offenders,
which presents a significant barrier to both employment and sustainable housing.

The percentage of adults who are reporting Veteran status increased 1% this year.

For the sixth consecutive year, bus passes are the top benefit needed. Likewise, dental
care remained the second most requested benefit needed and job placement remained
the third.

Affordable housing for people without disabilities is the fourth greatest need followed by
transportation. Other notable identified needs were: assistance in getting children
reunited with parents, vision care, and the provision of basic hygiene products.
