A fresh perspective on our mission, vision + core values

By Troy Broussard, president and CEO

DHA was founded in 1938. We are proud to celebrate 80 years of service to the community. Our agency has a deep history and legacy in affordable housing.

Today, DHA continues to move forward, reshaping how we deliver resources, improving our communities and people’s lives. We are leveraging our resources to help our residents and clients get on the path to a self-sufficient life. We take the lessons from our past with us into the future so that we can be good stewards of the resources entrusted to our care.

I am so proud of the work that this agency does. Our team includes 280 employees, who work each day to ensure 54,000 people have the housing resources they need to reach their full potential.

We will make sure that our mission, vision and core values truly reflect our goals and culture of service. Here is our fresh perspective on who we are, what we do and the values we live by.


Our mission is to provide affordable quality housing and access to supportive resources across North Texas.

We create housing solutions in healthy, inclusive communities that offer economic, educational and social growth opportunities. Our business partners and neighbors are an essential part of this mission.

Our dedicated, caring team of professionals is driven to deliver quality housing services on behalf of our clients and partners.


We believe…
Everyone deserves a place to call home.
Communities are stronger when everyone has a chance to thrive.
Affordable housing is an important part of the solution to reduce poverty.

Our vision is to be a catalyst for positive change, creating a brighter future by:
// providing pathways for people to enhance their quality of life
// developing more inclusive, sustainable housing solutions
// energizing communities and partners to join us on our mission

Core Values:

accountability // take pride and responsibility
learning // listen, share and advance
honesty // communicate with full transparency
inclusion // foster racially and economically diverse communities
motivation // work hard to drive change
relationships // value and care for one another
respect // serve others with honor and respect

Our team strives to represent these standards and we will also seek to hire teammates who embody our values.

These are more than just words. These are tenets we aim to live up to each day.

Thank you to our leadership team and employee committee for your time and insights in crafting these important principles.
