For many years, the Tarrant County Bar Association members have contributed their time and money to the building of houses for working people who may have only dreamed of home ownership. Working in partnership with Trinity Habitat for Humanity [formerly Fort Worth Area Habitat for Humanity], TCBA has enjoyed the privilege and the opportunity to demonstrate its skill with hammer and saw.

    Trinity Habitat for Humanity is a partnership of God’s people in building affordable houses and helping to strengthen neighborhoods.Habitat is committed to the ideal that all people deserve a simple, decent, healthy place to live on terms they can afford to pay.

    Through the distinguished generosity of Nancy and John McClane; the stalwart leadership of Chairman, Tolbert Greenwood; and countless TCBA members and their families, the dream of home ownership has continued to thrive and to flourish.

    When building a house, you are helping to create a home!   To volunteer in any capacity, contact TCBA liaison Cindy Rankin at or telephone 817.338.4092.


        LegalLine   LegalLine is a bi-monthly, free legal-consultation service to the public on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of each month, from 6 to 8 p.m.   Member attorneys volunteer to come to the TCBA offices to man up to 8 incoming-phone lines to answer questions, give legal advice, or give resource information to the public.   The Foundation furnishes a light dinner to the volunteers.
