Build A Community. Transform The Future.

We are Dallas City Homes.

About DCH

In 1989, a group of local leaders recognized the need to positively transform disinvested neighborhoods and preserve housing affordability. The company's vision is to optimize the human and physical potential of neighborhoods through the provision of housing, commercial space, and the collaborative delivery of resident services. During the company's history it has acquired rental properties in some of the most distressed areas of Dallas and converted those properties into safe, vibrant rental communities with good housing. Dallas City Homes has also created home ownership opportunities that have contributed more than $25 million in assets to local neighborhoods and a bright future for many families.

What We Do

DCH's job is to assist in the positive transformation of neighborhoods. These changes cannot take place without the contributions of neighborhood residents. Therefore in some cases DCH owns and operates housing in partnership with neighborhood organizations, and in other cases residents have assisted in the planning and execution of their neighborhood's revitalization.


DCH can envision a housing development, assemble the team to bring the vision to fruition and arrange for the financing.

Asset Management

DCH has asset management responsibility for more than 300 rentals.


DCH cannot successfully do its work alone and seeks the efficient use of funds, and the opportunity to expand resources through collaboration.
