OR Anyone 65-years-old or older;

Wrongful Eviction Assistance

Dallas County established a tenant helpline for tenants who have been evicted despite the order or who are pending eviction. Before reaching out residents are advised of the following:

Tenants engaged in criminal activity or causing an imminent threat to health and safety may be subject to eviction prior to the aforementioned date.

Tenants maintain responsibility for paying their rent.

Tenants are encouraged to contact their landlord and make sure they are aware when eviction moratoriums are in place.

When having difficulty paying rent, tenants should attempt to make payments and/or establish a payment schedule with their landlord.

Information about the initial order suspending evictions, is available in English and Spanish at: https://www.dallascounty.org/covid-19/tenant-hotline.php

Email: Tenanthotline@dallascounty.org | Call: 214-653-6563 or 833-743-0072

MENTAL HELP SUPPORT 

MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID TEAM AT THE NORTH TEXAS BEHAVIORAL HEALTH AUTHORITY

During this time, we know there are plenty of people in our communities that are stressed and nervous during these days of COVID-19.  We think it is important for them to know they are not alone. The North Texas Behavioral Health Authority (NTBHA) has dedicated a 24/7 COVID-19 Mental Health Support Line for individuals seeking mental health support in Dallas, Kaufman, Rockwall, Hunt, Ellis and Navarro Counties. This line can be reached at, 833-251-7544.  Individuals needing a higher level of support will be transferred directly to our traditional 24/7 crisis line at, 866-260-8000.

Also, as an additional future resource, we offer Mental Health First Aid training to our communities, in most cases at no charge. While we are unable to teach the classes virtually at this time, we are looking forward to making the course available as soon as the COVID-19 crisis has passed.  We would appreciate the opportunity to talk to you more about this important training.

More community resources can be found on our website https://ntbha.org/services/.  Feel free to contact NTBHA with any questions at mhfa@ntbha.org.
