A native Texan and Baylor grad, Daniel Roby serves as Executive Director for the Austin Street Center. Austin Street Center is the largest free emergency homeless shelter in the City of Dallas and is the only area emergency shelter that focuses on the older homeless population.

In 2016, Daniel was appointed by Mayor Mike Rawlings to participate in the City of Dallas’ Commission on Homelessness. This Commission is tasked with analyzing the community’s current system for addressing homelessness, comparing it to best practices of similar communities, and delivering a focused set of strategies and recommendations for the City and Dallas County to consider going forward. He is currently a member of the Board of Directors of Metro Dallas Homeless Alliance and chair of the Homeless Management Information System (HMIS) committee.

Under Daniel’s leadership, Austin Street has doubled the size of case management and staff, and more programs and services have been added to help individuals successfully end their homelessness.

Daniel received the Nonprofit CEO of the Year award in November 2017 from CNM Connect in Dallas. Also, he was selected in January 2018 as a recipient for the Dallas Business Journal’s “40 Under 40” award, which honors the top 40 North Texas men and women in business under the age of 40.

Daniel and his wife Lesley enjoy raising their four children in the Lake Highlands neighborhood in Dallas.
