    Lauren King is the Executive Director at Tarrant County Homeless Coalition and has been with the organization for more than six years, first serving as the Director of Development and then being named Executive Director in December 2020. She is a social worker who bleeds purple, but also has a touch of burnt orange in her too.

    For 15 years, Lauren has dedicated her career to serving in agencies serving those impacted by homelessness and poverty, spending most of her career prior to the Homeless Coalition with SafeHaven and Catholic Charities. She has always been and remains committed to providing service to those most in need. With the Homeless Coalition she is committed to realizing the shared community vision of a vibrant community where everyone has a place to call home. Most recently, she helped secure $62M in capital to build housing for people who have experienced homelessness.

    Lauren grew up in Fort Worth and is committed to making the community she loves a better place for all. When she’s not working to end homelessness, Lauren enjoys spending time with her large extended family, traveling as much as possible, and cheering the Frogs on at every opportunity.

2021 Events

January Lunchtime Presentation

Change Your LENS:
A model for understanding cultural differences


 "Despite good intentions, it is easy to judge others based on our cultural viewpoint. We need to intentionally disrupt this process in order to recognize the nature of our own cultural influences and to understand and validate another’s cultural influences."

News & Networking - June 25

In June, we restarted our News & Networking event as an online Zoom chat with

Our second Coffee & Conversation event for 2019 focused on women's health issues.  We heard from several women who are involved with local agencies and organizations working to improve women's health in our community.  See a complete summary
