Hope Lives Here

Texoma Family Shelter pledges to help homeless families and individuals achieve self-sufficiency by guiding them toward appropriate skills and attitudes, and by providing lodging and sustenance in a safe and nurturing environment.

About Us

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.
