Texoma Family Shelter is a 501(c)(3) non-profit homeless shelter for displaced families and singles, and is the only shelter in Grayson County providing temporary housing for homeless families.
The Shelter receives no local, county, state or federal government funding. Operating expenses are paid from donations, grants and revenue generated from the Texoma Family Thrift store that is next to the Shelter.
Residents must be able to pass a drug screen and the Shelter does not function as a domestic abuse crisis facility. Shelter staff can assist with redirecting people for those services.
Do You Need Help?
If you find yourself in need of a calm harbor from life’s storms, we are here for you. Each resident has their own story, often involving economic hardships, family break-ups, and substance abuse, among other stressors.
If you are a single woman (21 and older), a single man (35 and older), or a family, we can offer you, at no charge:
A clean and safe sleeping room
Showers & toiletries
Meals, snacks & drinks
Laundry facilities & detergent
Job search assistance
Basic financial planning help
Help transitioning to permanent housing
Texoma Family Shelter appreciates your continued support as we help revitalize & restore hope in the lives of the homeless in our community!

God sent us here yup my 4 year old and I. We loved all the help. Took me 5 weeks to find a job get an apt. And we were back on our feet. Amazing angels were there. Always a huge Thank You.”
Tracy Realty supports the Texoma Family Shelter because we believe in the work TFS is doing to help those who find themselves without a place to call home. When I was a child, my Dad lost our house in a high stakes poker game. We went from homeowners to tenants and then after my parents’s divorce, my mom, 3 sisters and I were unhoused. Fortunately, we had grandparents nearby and we were able to move in with them, until my mom was able to get employment and our own apartment. For people finding themselves in situational homelessness, with the loss of a job, a divorce, or medical emergency, the Shelter is that stop on the way to finding an affordable rental. TFS provides not only emotional support and counseling and a safe and clean place to stay, they offer help with employment, healthcare, childcare and heathy regular meals. TFS provides these necessary services and does so in a kind and caring environment.

Thank you TFS for making this world just a little bit easier for those who need help and support with the most important need, a place to live.
