OUR HISTORY

For more than 80 years, DHA has provided affordable quality housing and access to supportive resources in our community. We believe our history is important to know, understand and remember. We know where we came from, as all these points in history have shaped who we are today, and we will reflect on our history to help guide our future.

LEADERSHIP

DHA is governed by a Board of Commissioners that is appointed by the Mayor of the City of Dallas. The Board of Commissioners is responsible for setting policy and financial oversight. Together, the Board of Commissioners and DHA’s executive leadership team set the mission, vision and strategy for the agency.

The management team has begun long-term strategic planning to maximize the agency’s assets to ensure DHA meets the affordable, sustainable housing needs of the community. DHA’s ultimate goal is to create and cultivate programs designed to assist families in achieving economic independence.

We are proud to have a distinguished and dedicated Board of Commissioners and an experienced, caring executive leadership team guiding us forward.
