Children & Adolescents

Metrocare serves more than 17,000 children each year, providing behavioral health and intellectual disability services. Help support Dallas County children experiencing behavioral health challenges, live a healthy productive life.

Center for Children with Autism at Metrocare

One in 68 children have an autism spectrum disorder (ASD) diagnosis, and the Center for Children with Autism at Metrocare (CCAM) is here to help meet this growing need. With three locations throughout Dallas County, the CCAM centers lead each child to his or her potential through hands-on, individualized treatment. 

Early Childhood Intervention

Early Childhood Intervention (ECI) is a statewide program within the Texas Health and Human Services Commission (HHSC) for families with children birth up to age three, with developmental delays, disabilities or certain medical diagnoses that may impact development. ECI services support families as they learn how to help their children grow and learn.


Metrocare serves military members and their families to heal the invisible wounds of war and assist with the transition from military to civilian life. Since May 2016, the Steven A. Cohen Military Family Clinic at Metrocare provides a wide range of mental health services to veterans and their family members, regardless of discharge status and ability to pay.

Homeless & Housing Services

Metrocare is the second largest provider of housing services in Dallas. We house and provide supportive services to more than 600 individuals on any given day. In addition to housing, we also provide a wide-range of support and mental health services to those who are not housed.

The Altshuler Center for Education & Research

The ACER is dedicated to developing leaders for public mental health service through specialized clinical and research training programs. ACER trains more than 200 health care professionals each year utilizing best practices informed by cutting edge research for individuals with chronic and persistent mental disorders. Through these efforts, ACER is advancing behavioral health care beyond Dallas County.

Medication Assistance

Individuals living with behavioral health challenges can have productive, fulfilling lives when maintaining a consistent balance of therapy and medication. Prescribed medications plays a vital role in treatment for those experiencing behavioral health challenges. They help reduce symptoms and prevent relapses of psychiatric disorders. With your donation, Metrocare is able to provide medication assistance to those we serve who often cannot afford their prescriptions.

The David Homan Endowment Fund

The David Homan Endowment Fund was created by David’s family to help assist individuals receiving services at Metrocare’s Samuell Behavioral Health Center who are unable to afford their medication. Read more about David's story here.
