The Fort Worth Police Department, City of Fort Worth and many local agencies and organizations work daily to provide necessary services for homeless individuals in our city. Immediate aid is available through many social service agencies and organizations in the City of Fort Worth. There is help for those that want it and will accept it. Our shelters and local organizations provide meals, shelter, health care, alcohol and drug dependency care and employment counseling.

Aggressive begging or panhandling should not be tolerated and can create a dangerous situation. Your personal safety should always come first when you are approached by a panhandler.
