Spectrum Housing was founded in 1992 by John D. (Jack) Mathews and Lorri Jordan w/our president Frederick D. Schnurr to address problems occuring at some multi-family housing complexes in the Dallas area. Initially, Spectrum was engaged by another Dallas-based nonprofits to assist with management and the development of social service plan for properties acquired through the HUD Disposition Program. Today, Spectrum had developed into an agency that is HUD-preferred for its expertise. Spectrum is also working with groups in Austin, Tx. where afterschool care is provided as well as summer programs for the complexs that were involved with.
