DALLAS – Homeless teens in Dallas ISD will now have place to sleep.
With an eight to zero vote yesterday, trustees approved a first of its kind shelter and drop in center for students in need.
A shuttered Dallas elementary campus in Fair Park will be converted into a 35-bed shelter for 14 to 21-year-old homeless students.
The shelter will provide supportive and education services as well as serve as a 24/7 drop in center for homeless students.
The district is hoping to have the facility open by next summer.
