Our West Dallas Home

In 1993, DHA built its headquarters in the heart of West Dallas, which was once the highest concentration of low-rise public housing in the country. The neighborhood was also severely polluted with lead from a nearby smelter that operated from the 1930s until its closure in 1984. During 1994 and 1995, DHA worked with the EPA to remove the lead pollution in the neighborhood and redeveloped the land with new mixed-income single-family homes, townhomes, and apartments.

Today, West Dallas is a vibrant, healthy neighborhood with amenities for community members of all ages. The area is home to so many wonderful resources and organizations that help ensure we continue to evolve into a prosperous and healthy part of Dallas. DHA also purchased the Lakewest Shopping Center and attracted a major grocer to a neighborhood that was once a food desert.
