Dallas Municipal Court launched innovative program to help the homeless and clear misdemeanors

Dallas, Texas – The Dallas Municipal Court has launched an innovative program aimed at assisting the homeless population and addressing the backlog of Class C misdemeanors. This new warrant resolution option, introduced over the weekend, offers a unique opportunity for individuals to clear their court warrant fees while contributing to a humanitarian cause.

A Win-Win Initiative

Participants are encouraged to bring their blanket donations directly to the court, where they will be collected upon checking in with the court clerk. These blankets and throws will be forwarded to the Office of Homeless Solutions. This organization will then distribute the donations as needed to support the homeless community in Dallas.

The program is set to run until March 7th, with specific donation times at the City of Dallas Municipal Court located at 2014 Main St. and additional collection points at the MLK Recreation Center and the Mattie Nash Recreation Center on designated days.

Program Details

  • Donation Schedule: Through March 1st, between 7:30 and 10 a.m., and March 4th–7th, between 1 and 3 p.m. For the weekend of March 2nd–3rd, donations can be made from 8 a.m. to noon at the MLK Recreation Center and the Mattie Nash Recreation Center.
  • Requirement for Participation: A government-issued photo ID is required for check-in, and the judge will address up to six violations per person per day.
